A Christmas Card for challenges

I have decided to make a Christmas card that fits in with 2 of the places I like to do challenges. The Shabby Tea room has birthstones and mine is the garnet, Fashionable Stamping Challenges has Ribbon and Lace


I made the two backing papers in garnet and white spots and coloured the poinsttea with shades of garnet -added a lace embellishment and some ribbon.  The image is a stamp I have had for a long time and is called Medallion Bordered Poinsetta J1404G.
