Pointsettia christmas

Do my flowers overpower my image, I can't decide, but I think they might just a little bit, but either way it's too late as this card is already on its way to a new home.

The pointsettias are from hobbycraft and i couldn't resist the sparkle but still think they might be a bit big should have gone to wild orchid but I bought these before I went in to hospital and as I can't drive for at least another 3 to 6 weeks and realised I had to get this card done at the last minute I had to use what I had.

The image is another sugar nellie, got to love 'em all they are just so fab, coloured with promarkers and stickle sparkle too. I added some clear glaze to the holly too.

The wrap thingy on the bottom is vellum that I used a brass stencil to emboss, I tried doing it on white pearliesd  card but the stencil was so fine that the tool just couldn't put enoughpressure on to form the image so I went with the vellum and think that bit works quite well, the edge is punched.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-

Sweet stampin-colour challenge, think I got them all
Cute card thursday-gently does it
Paper Sundaes-let it snow
One stitch at a time-winter wonderland
