Stampin' Up! Contempo Christmas, French Foliage and The Best is Yet to Be combined to make a Christmas Card

Hi guys! It's been a super busy week, as work has asked me to come in 4 days a week instead of my usual 2, and on the midweek break that I usually have, I had stamp club, so all craft had been put on hold... I got into the craft room last night though, and made up this card
I have used a Crumbcake (Kraft) base, which has a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock, which I have run through the Big Shot using a new embossing folder (for me anyway), called Stripes. I then got a piece of Vanilla card stock which I have stamped the little leaf from French Foliage in Old Olive, and then stamped the ornament from Contempo Christmas in Not Quite Navy and Rich Razzleberry. I then drew a border using my black Stampin' Write Marker and a ruler. The sentiment is from The Best is Yet to Be, and has been stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I mounted it to a scallop circle of Old Olive, and punched some tiny holes in the petals. 
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, and then into the Embellish Magazine colour challenge, which also must use Leaves
Thanks for dropping around! 
Don't forget, that my Blog Candy finishes on Thursday!
