Yet another card for this weeks Sundays with Santa Challenge

Good Evening Crafters well the sun is out but the sky is rather dark in places so I suspect its going to turn to rain, it just doesnt seem to want to last. Well this weeks theme over on Sundays with Santa Challenge over on Facebook is "Shades of Blue" though someone originally thought it might be "Shades of Grey" I wonder if shes hoping? Oh well I decided to use the new Tonic 4 day deal over on Create and Craft, though they are beautiful dies I must admit the punches arnt exactly as good as I expected, the one I have used on this pearlescent card jammed up when I tried to use it around the edge of the card, so I had to accept it didnt like it and then just use it on the corners.
I have used white pearlescent for the base card then used the Tonic dies for the top layer, Ive used two different ones and have placed a piece of pale blue card behind the smaller cut out, though its not to easy to see.
I also cut out the sentiment with the Cheery Lynn dies and placed them across the middle of the card, and to finish of I have used three blue poinsetta's and two fancy white flowers, I then placed them in the bottom left hand corner sticking them to the card with silicone glue on top of some punches out holly leaves.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
