Christmas greenery

It's so difficult to take good photos on these gloomy days. I need to take advice on getting good colour in photos. 
You'll have to take my word for it that the colours look great in real life. I decided to go away from red and green so this is just greenery with teal accents and a little gold. 

I stamped the wreath and then added a few baubles in copper dye ink and then topped with glossy accents. The cut out bow finishes it off. 

I think it adds some subtle sparkle without being too bling. Although if you can't have bling on a Christmas card, when can you?
Incidentally, if any one knows how to get on with dye inks please let me know. I have this copper one and when used un-ebossed it never really dries and the copper sheen comes off on your hand.  
I'm entering this into the Less is More - Jingle all the way challenge. Anything Christmassy. 
Most of the stamps used here are Card-io plus one Kanban leaf stamp and an Inky Doodles bow.
