Pine Cones, Greens, and Ribbon (2 versions)

Original card
Card Reworked
Hello!  I have another Holiday Card to add to my stash.  I will be entering this into several challenges.  I have not really decided if I like this card since I saw it  posted.  Maybe the water coloring of the pine cone panel is too much. 
Note: I redid the card and added some cut out pine boughs to replace the stamped image.  I am showing both for comparison.
Merry Monday Christmas: Use Pine cones and greens with plaid ribbon. Graphic below.
Tuesday Morning Sketches: Sketch shown below. Twist is to use water coloring. Panel and pine cone done water coloring with distress inks.
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge: Use fussy cutting. Used scissors to cut out stamped image. Top card.
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Theme is Spots/Dots
Addicted to Stamps and More: Holiday Theme
Stamps: MFP Stamps
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Distress Ink Vintage Photo, Antique Linen
Markers: Memento Bamboo Leaves, Northern Pine
Copics: E43,44,47,49
