Cute card!

what about some glitter on the star or a bow somewhere? (most wreaths have a bow and you could make this one 3d)

Wow, that's a beautiful card! I can tell you put a lot of thought into it. If I had a star punch, I'd cut out a yelllowish/gold star and attach with with the bottom right brad. Maybe you could bend up that corner.

I seriously think its just perfect! MAYBE add gold to the star with a gold pen-but thats it.

It needs an envelope with my address on it and a postage stamp to mail it to me!! LOL Great card as is. If you really NEED to improve it, I guess you could add a touch of glitter to the star, but I'm loving it as is.

It is a beautiful card. The only thing that i might suggest is using a little bit of SU! Crystal Effects on the red berries and the star. It adds a lacquered effect that will really bring them out and make them shine. You did a great job.

Beautiful card. I think it is stunning just the way it is. If you wanted to add something, a little glitter or gold to the star.

I didn't mean to have part of that in larger, bolder print. I asked how to add smileys and Dancing Rain was nice enough to pm me on how to "enhance" my posts. I need practice, obviously.

Thank you all for your suggestions.
And if I summed them up it would be glitter, sparkle!
And, of course you are right. I went for more contrast when I painted it, and I put a dot of the white gel pen on each berry. I will try crystal effects next time and see which I like better.
I tied a gold cord and I really like that.
And I sponged versamark on the wreath and put a bir of gold embossing powder.
Finally I used a different background stamp to add more differentiation.
So, here it is:

Just a lovely card. I especially like the background with the different papers.
