Wonderful Wreath

I have been designing and making cards for my upcoming Christmas Stamp-A-Stack on November 23rd.  This is card number 5.  I knew I wanted to use this stamp and I tried stamping it in various greens.  It looked flat and uninspiring.  Embossing always feels magical to me so I decided it might be rich looking to emboss it in gold.  My next dilemma was what to use for holy berries.  Punched out red circles did nothing.  Then it dawned on me I could color rhinestones with a red Sharpie.  Doing this added the texture that was needed.  I added a red bow then matted it in red.  I am pleased with the end results!
