I redid this card adding a nicer sentiment (which next time I'll get straight on the card), embossing on the wreath, and metallic cardstock. Now I'm wondering if I should change the mustard ribbon to gold - what do you think?

Personally, I like the more mustard ribbon, but gold would work, too. Also-- I'm dieing to know. How on earth did you stamp in such a perfect circle??? I would love to try one of these but I know I'd end up with a deformed wreath! :p Thanks so much for sharing this.

Believe it or not, I actually did the circle freehand! I started with doing the NSEW spots first using Really Rust, then filled in between each of those with Creamy Caramel, then filled in between every other one with Pumpkin Pie, then between the remaining space with More Mustard. I used the outline stamp in Close to Cocoa first, then with VersaMark (which was VERY hard to see!). Added gold EP and a little heat, and viola! I really like this version of the card as compared to the one I made a week earlier. The brushed copper and gold paper gives it a real professional look, I think (although I need to stamp on the sentiment straighter next time!). Thanks for the kind words!
