Idris @ Yule

Hi there,

I decided to try and combine a couple of random challenges today to create my card, which is here:

As you can see I have made a tri-fold card from a piece of A4 green card stock. I embossed the front and back panels (in the same direction) using a new snowflake embossing folder from Dovecraft. I then decorated the front panel with a die-cut from a My Minds Eye christmas paper pack using a free flower nesting die, a poinsettia cut using Britannia poinsettia die in two sizes on pink floral paper and adding a Papermania Neon centre and a Me To You sentiment tag peel-off on a die-cut tag from the My Minds Eye paper. The back panel on the same side was embellished with the same poinsettia, this time cut from a red patterned paper from the y Minds Eye paper stack, with the neon centre, a stamped Idris the dragon, from Ivor the Engine on the same paper and a die-cut flower from the inside of the flower nesting die, with a fabric gingham flower in the centre topped with a red gem flower too.
The other side was embellished using gold peel-offs and Idris stamps on the red My Minds Eye paper. On the reverse of the front panel I used a sentiment with flowers, with a pinsettia frame around an Idris on the centre, along with an Idris on the top, where he will be seen when the card is standing upright, and an Idris and Poinsettia stem on the final side.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
