#stampingsunday Christmas in July adventure

You may have noticed that there are no holiday-only stamp sets in the new annual catalog.  There are some carry-over sets available, and two brand-new sets have just been released, but I decided to stick with annual catalog stamp sets simply to challenge myself.  In addition, I wanted to use just green and white for the challenge at Merry Monday:
stamp sets - Daydream Medallions,  Sassy Salutations; ink  - Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive; card stock - Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
I thought the medallions looked like wreaths, but now I'm unsure about how well I like it.  It's not a difficult one to make multiples of, though, so I'm considering including it as one of the selections for my Card Buffet this month.  Let me know what you think, please?

edited to add - While browsing the Merry Monday submissions (many beautiful cards, you should browse, too!) I found Simply Create Too (a challenge I've not seen before!) where it's Christmas in July.  Since that's the #stampingsunday theme that got me started this week, I think I have to link there, too!
