Jingle Belles "Banish the Blues" challenge

The current challenge @ Jingle Bells is to create a Christmas card without using the color blue.  This was a perfect challenge to use my new WPlus9 wreath stamp set and my favorite Christmas color combination of red and green. 

I haven't done much layered stamping, but using the Misti stamping tool made it much easier than I thought!  I stamped the wreath in four layers, with two shades of green, kraft for the branches and red for the berries.  I outlined the edges of the cut out circle with an embossing pen, then embossed with gold embossing powder. 
It's a pretty simple card, but I really like the classic look.  Thanks for the challenge, Jingle Belles!
