Christmas patchwork

Happy Monday everyone,
Hope you all had a great weekend, did you get some nice choccies??

Today I have a Christmas card. I saw a great video on Gina K designs - stamp TV last week called scrappy background and decided to use up some pieces of patterned paper to make this card.

The image I used is Christmas Paper  from DS4J, cut out and mounted on red mirror board.
Added a poinsettia that is a 3D peel-off. I have had a number of these for ages, and have now almost used them all.
Added pearls.
It was quite a quick background to make and a lot of fun.
Will enter the following challenges:
