Red Festive Flower

It's been some time since I've done one of my more elaborate cards.. I have been concentrating on cards that do not cost too much to post around the world.  I wanted to include one of my Decorative Pins and chose the Red Pin.. This pin is rather regal looking so I knew it had to be a special card.  I went through a box of flowers I had made years ago but decided I would start from scratch and chose the FESTIVE FLOWER (from PENNY FLOWERS) but instead of doing a plain centre I did a fringed one and lightly touched it with some glue and then some shiny gold glitter.  Not something I normally do but it worked.  I'm not completely happy with where I have placed the pin but it was the only place it looked ok.  My hubby thinks this card would make a great Christmas card..  Perhaps he's right but one sure wouldn't want to make a heap of these!
