ABC's

This is my card for my personal challenge of a Christmas card each.  All paper is from Anna Griffin.  I saw the clean and simple sketch on ABC Christmas Challenge blog and knew which stamp I was going to use, and the ABC challenge called for neutral colors, so this card kind of fell together pretty quickly.  The wreath is embossed with gold EP, cut out with Spellbinders circle Nesties, as is the frame around it.  The ladies at 2 Sisters challenge say the world is our oyster - to use pearls - so I added some to the wreath.  The sentiment is from JustRite.
