Christmas Wreath card

Hi, there!
 This is my second card to use my prize goodies from Hero Arts. I played it today :), though it was for a short time. And, finished a card to use the Starburst Lace and the Wreath of Leaves stamps with my favorite small holly tree since last year's release.

 Here is my new holiday card for the the Hero Arts October challenge Round 2.

Click the photo above to enlarge please.

 Love this elegant wreath stamp so much!
The wreath part was layered stamping and embossing - stamped with two pigment green color inks and embossed with embossing tinsel. I used the Starburst Lace first, and stamped the wreath stamp on it to make layers. And added Twinkling H2Os watercolors with a natural sponge onto the layered wreath. Also colored holly trees with them.
*The holly tree was stamped with green color oil based ink after stamping the Design Blocks Tree with Memories white on the Kraft.
The white ribbon was stamped with oil based red ink to use 'Peace Love Joy' clear stamp. And the central holly tree was raised a little to make 3 - dimensional.
Can you see the stamped image of the Starburst Lace? ;)
