Red, green and gold Christmas card

This is the sketch for Cutie Sunday 66:

It's also good for:

Something completely different: holly and ivy, red green and gold, on a Christmas card
Magical Crafts fortnight first challenge: Christmas card, red, green and gold
Stampin' B's design team 31: 'Christmas card' (new challenge blog to me)
The Crafty Pad 44: 'red, green, gold'
Susie's sassy first challenge: 'Christmas'.
Christmas Stampin' 32: 'traditional Christmas colours' - red, green and silver or gold (now that challenges have finished on Christmas Stampin' we are encouraged to go back and do some of the challenges we missed)
Paper Maniac Inspirations: die cuts (the holly leaves, which were originally silver, so I swiped them with a green stazon ink pad.
My time to craft 84: 'so many scallops'
Crafty Catz 7: 'going dotty' - plenty of dots on here

I've used offcuts of red and gold foiled card and green spotty paper for the scalloped edges at the top of the card, a piece of vellum across the middle. The stamped ivy was stamped on to scrapperdashery 'the holly and the ivy - without the ivy' paper, coloured with a copic (lime green G21). The background is gold mirror card (although it looks a bit silvery here because of the flash photo).
