The Christmas Sweets Challenge - Flourishes

As promised, I'm back with my card for today's Noon Time Challenge on Flourishes blog.  I promise this is it for me for today!  The "Christmas Sweets Challenge" was a color challenge - to use red, white and soft green for our project. 
Here is the inspiration photo:

Here is my card for the challenge:

I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight White and added a couple of patterned papers from the Melissa Frances Deck The Halls 6x6 pad.  I stamped the image from the Flourishes Meet Me Under The Mistletoe set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I cut out the image with a Spellbinders Lacey Circle Die.  I added a few silver pearls to the image frame and card.  The sentiment from Flourishes A Gift For You was also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  A double-loop satin bow and a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my card. 

That's it for me for the day!  I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site!  Hope you'll stop by!
