52 CCT Theme Challenge #1

Hi everyone, I thought I would enter the 52 Christmas Card Throw down challenge as I haven't made a Xmas card for ages!!
I'm hoping my card will pass muster with Mynnette and Jacqueline, they are asking for Xmas flowers and I have used an Amaryllis stamp as they always flower around the festive period! Actually I don't appear to own a poinsettia stamp, something to be rectified before next Christmas!

I matted green pearlised card over the spine of my white base card and stamped with black Memento ink and coloured in with PM's. I decoupaged some of the petals and the leaves were stamped separately, moulded and attached with silicone glue. I added some faux stitching and a sentiment . Hope it fits the challenge, it is Christmassy colours anyway:)
Thanks for taking the time to visit, please leave a comment so I can visit you too!
