CTD#171 - Happy Holidays

Hello everyone!  I hope your week is going well so far.  Today is Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge (CTD171).  Wanda is our hostess this week and she's chosen some great colors for us to work with and we hope you'll find time to play along.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Wreath for All Seasons and some My Mind's Eye designer paper and I used this week's Deconstructing Sketch Challenge #29 for my layout.  I started out with a bravo burgundy card base then added a soft suede panel that I embossed using an SU embossing plate.  I added a row of white scallops and my designer paper piece and then stamped the wreath in old olive, the berries in bravo burgundy.  To finish off my card I added ribbon, two buttons and some iridescent Stickles to the berries.
