Christmas card

I am trying to be prepared with my Christmas cards this year. I remember one of my neighbours liking a card very similar to this last year so I decided to make one for her.

I have matt and layerd my 8x8in white card with red card and then white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I die cut the trellis design with a Tonic die and the candles with a Marianne die. I attached those to my card. I then added the holly flourish that I cut with a Cheery Lynn die and then the poinsettia that I cut with a Marianne die. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops and flat backed pearls.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
