Two (or maybe four) challenges, one card :)

Hello, here's my latest make. I really like this card in real life, but all the photos I've taken of it make all the colours look really flat, which isn't the case at all. The image is from Pollycraft, one of their digital stamps, the flowers are from Fred She Said, and I made the paper myself. I also really like this paper, and tried to design a whole set that I could give away, but so far I've disliked every other design I tried, so it may end up being a solitary paper, rather than a whole pack.
Anyhoo, it matches the following challenges:
The Magical Crafts blog is running its first fortnightly challenge, and the colour combo is red green and gold. There is a second part to this challenge as well, which is to make a Christmas ornament, but I haven't done that yet, if I come up with anything I'll post it later :)
And the Crafty Pad challenge, is the same colour theme this week, which keeps things nice and simple.
And the following two challenges don't really count because I'm running them, but this card also follows the current sketch over at Creations by JJ, and also fits into the fun weekly challenge which this week is simply to enter a challenge ;)
Thanks for looking, have a great day :)
