52 Christmas Card Challenge Sketch Week

I almost missed the 52 CCT this week and am just squeezing my entry in before the deadline - not great for week 2 - promise to try harder next week.  This week they have a nice simple sketch for us to follow

I struggled with ideas as I had planned on using my nbew magnolia which holds a sign but I wanted it to hold a circle and it wouldn't.  So I decided to add snowflakes around my circle instead.  Strip of matching snowflake backing paper  on a gold base card and a few red gems to finish.  Not sure it looks all that festive but it will have to do for this week.

I just found out that I got an honourable mention for my first card for this challenge too - thanks so much for picking me ladies.
