Twofer Card Challenge

Hi Everyone, I'm just squeaking in under the wire for the Twofer Challenge
My card is made using one of the Paper Artsy flowers (Eclectica³ {Kay Carley} 02) and by flipping then upside down I made my Christmas baubles.
 
 
 
Flowers- I stamped the images and used pencils to colour.
 

Baubles- stamped the image in Delicata Gold ink for a little shimmer; coloured the little petals and stems with pencils; and then blended ink through a stencil for the bauble.

Watercooler Wednesday (all about occasions)
Merry Little Christmas (anything goes Christmas)
