Crafts4Eternity Challenge, Our Creative Corner Challenge and Passion for Promarker Challenge

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything on  here for a while, I needed to get some other things done.
I've missed entering the challenges but with the onset of Christmas I've had to concentrate on getting  presents and other things ready for the festive period.

I have made a card today though, and I am going to enter it into the 3 different challenges as follows:-
1) Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #8 - Following a recipe to (a) use a sketch (b) add a flower or 2 (c) add a sprinkle of glitter
2) Our Creative Corner Colour Challenge - using colours close to cocoa/pumpkin pie/white/choc chip
3) Passion For Promarkers #27 - Theme of "Vintage"

I enjoyed making this card, and loved using glitter again, I've not used it for a while, though I'm not sure why. I used the glitter on the presents the girl in the image is  holding, and on the flowers I punched out.

I felt the colours of the papers fitted in well with the "vintage" theme as,
 quite often, those colours were used.

The cardstock I used was from The Paper Mill, and the backing papers were from  Papermania Regency Signature range,  I also punched the flowers out of this paper too.
I didn't have a  pattern like on the image (the pointed piece of card at the bottom of the image), so I cut one out by hand as best as I could.
The glitter I used was Stickles Diamond. I find this one changes colour slightly depending on the background you apply it to. ie, it looks a different colour on the presents than it looks on the flowers, yet it's the same stickles that I've used.

I hope you enjoy my card as much as I had making it!
