PRETTY FLOWER FOR WONDERFUL YOU

Obviously this isn't my pretty flower card, that's below! But I thought I'd share a little picture of my tidy (ish) craft room and newly appointed Christmas wine cellar! I'm not an alcoholic (not through lack of trying!), but a few years ago, I started spreading the cost of Christmas booze; buy the stuff on sale throughout the year, then spend less at Christmas! It does as emergency presents too! But I have to hide it away otherwise hubby would drink the lot lol.
Anyway, my card:

I've followed the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge for this card. I love their new blog! Here's the sketch and colour scheme for challenge 2:
I haven't "fused" because I wanted this card to be for my lovely sister-in-law, one of three birthdays I have to make cards for on Tuesday, and Sharon is all deep reds and flowers so I think this will do just perfick!
I've used some freebie papers from a magazine on a cream base card. The flower is one I've cut and layered up, finished off with a pearl flower centre. The sentiment came free with the mag too!
So this is my entry in challenge two....I will endeavour to enter every one because it's such a fab idea!
Hugs
