With Love At Christmas

I created this Christmas card using Pati's Kisses from Elisabeth Bell.  I started with a burgundy card base. I added a piece of pastel blue card stock backed in white.  I cut a large strip and a thin strip of burgundy card stock.  I backed them both in white card stock and punched a lace border at the bottom of the large strip.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I backed it in burgundy, then white, then pastel blue and then again in white.  I added it to the left side middle of the card.  I layered a blue paper flower onto a white paper flower.  I also punched a small white snowflake and added it to the blue flower.  I added a red pearl to the center of the snowflake and then added two white pearls to the thin strip of red card stock.  I stamped the sentiment "with love at Christmas" directly onto the bottom of the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
