Red and Green at PanPastel UK

Hi again, my second post of the day and this time its my DT project for PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Red and Green' so of course that's a perfect excuse to make another Christmas card. 

I've used permanent red PanPastel and Bright Yellow Green shade to create the background for this card, I've overstamped with a gorgeous background stamp from Chocolate Baroque using flitterglu and gold gilding flakes. For some reason I really struggle with gilding flakes grrrrrrrr. I've layered the background on kraft card and used kraft for the focal image (also from Chocolate Baroque)

The image is stamped with versamark and embossed with WOW gold EP and coloured with PanPastels. The poinsettia has also been decoupaged.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Mania: embossing
Crafty Bloggers: Christmas anything goes
Divas by Design: Anything goes

Papertake Weekly: flower power
There she goes: Let it snow
