Christmas Wishes Turnabout Card

Happy Tuesday!  This week's challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches is both a sketch and color challenge.  The colors made me think of Christmas - maybe because I'm starting to get nervous about having all my cards made!
Here is the challenge:
I created the patterned panel by using a new stamp I just purchased call a "turnabout" stamp.  It's from Concord and 9th.  You put you paper in a stamping platform that will hold a 6 inch square.  You stamp the first color, turn the paper 90 degrees, stamp the second color, then turn and stamp until you have done this four times. The pattern fills itself in.  You can switch up colors as I did or do a monochromatic background.

I used the three challenge colors plus a grey.  (I thought about heat embossing in silver for the fourth color but decided I wanted to practice first before I went a bit crazy!)

To finish off the card I dies cut some sprigs and used silver thread to "tie" them on.

Stamps: Concord & 9th Deck the Halls Turnabout
Dies: Stampin' Up! Pretty Pines
