A Card for Sundays with Santa

Good Morning Everyone, do you know its quite chilly here in Gloucestershire and its threatening rain yet again, I do wish it would make its mind up what the season really is, Im sure just hoping that it improves radically by the 18th as my eldest grandson is due to get married in Norfolk, and Ive also got two of my youngest daughters sons coming for a weeks holiday from the 11th so its going to be all go after next Saturday, just keep your fingers crossed the weather improves by then.
Anyway this weeks Sundays with Santa Challenge is all about "Layers" so Ive used this gorgeous "Silent Night" from The Paper Shelter and cut it out with a Rectangle Nestabilie Die, and then cut a larger one from red card for the mount, Ive also used some red ink and distressed the edges of the image with it.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount is a piece of red card, the papers I have used are all from Donna's Bearlymine Christmas design sets, I carnt give you the names as Ive actually mixed them up, the first one is a red background with holly wreaths on, for the second Ive used a striped one and a holly border and corner punch on, and for the third is sentiment paper and for this I have used the border punch and just done the one edge with it.
To finish of I have used three poinsetta flower in the top left hand corner and stuck them to the card with some silicone glue and punched out holly leaves. Ive not put a separate sentiment on but Im using the paper as one instead.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hey Shirley,
I do not know what is worst.. We have had such HOT weather, upper 90 and low 100's and NO rain as we are in a drought now and the farmers are losing most of their corn crop this year. I hate it when it is so hot you have to have the air conditioning on all the time, you can not enjoy the summer at all.
Love your Christmas card. All your layers are amazing love the designer paper and the poinsettia flowers.
