SweetStamps #146: Red and Green

Good morning!!
Today at SweetStamps, it's time for another weekly challenge.
This weeks theme is: 
For my card today, I tied to stick strictly to the color combination.
I love the the Christmas wreath, which I stippled colored with my Copic markers and added distressing to the edge.  I normally do not like to cut my stamps up, but I wanted to, just so that I could fit the sentiment on my card.  A girl has to do what needs to be done!!!  :) 

So, I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will find inspiration to join us this week.
