15-minute Christmas card

Today I'm sharing a step-up card from yesterday's card:

It is really just a tiny step up from yesterday's card.  The extra step I did was to add some patterned paper to the card base.  Again I must express how adorable the Lawn Fawn Snow Day paper pack is.  The coordinating colors and patterns help making cards faster!  Other than that, I simply inked up the stamps in the same colors (two shades of green, brown and red), then die cut the Scripty Joy die with my die-cutting machine.

This time the wreath is smaller than that on yesterday's card.  I just started with a smaller circle (1 1/4", compared to 1 3/4" on yesterday's card) in the middle then stamped the sprigs, pine cones and berries around that circle.

Do you like this step-up version or the simpler version from yesterday better?

I'm linking up my card to the following:
