A Card for Facebooks Sundays with Santa

Good Morning Crafters, its been a extremely busy weekend for me and I didnt get around to checking the theme for Sundays Facebook Challenge and as I had decided to create this card using the Sue Wilsons products I thought I would enter it instead, but it seems I was right on trend as this weeks theme was all about "Flowers" thats a bit of luck wasnt it?
Firstly I want to warn you about something that happened to me during last week and I would like to give you the go ahead incase it ever happens to you, a month ago I had my credit card details on Amazon hacked and someone helped themselves to £150. of gift vouchers, as I had not spend them (luckily Amazon always send me receipts when I have bought something) I had to go through the procedure of proving it wasnt my purchases, luckily I was able to proof it and they recompensed my account by removing them, but I also had to cancel my credit card and be issued with a brand new number.
I dont know if you can guess I had the old number linked to several accounts and one of these was Create and Craft, and as I had bought something on flexi-pay it was linked to the payments on this, and they (I had changed the details and put the new card details on their website) tried to get payments from the old card to cover the flexi-pay plan, and instead of contacting me directly as soon as the 1st payment was refused they tried again then sent me a letter. To cut a long story short I had to contact them by phone to change the card payment details to the new one and I was charged £15.00 for the pleasure of not doing so before, so be Warned if you have to change your credit card number during a flexi-pay plan ring them to give them the new details otherwise you also will be charged. I did ask them to let other buyers know of this problem but whether they will is another story.
Anyway to get back to my card, I used a mask for the background with Silver glitter texture paste, and this was also used on the poinsettia flowers. The strip is the 3 kings and they are all from Creative Expressions.
This Card is to be entered in the following  Challenges:-

Sorry to hear about all your troubles with your credit card being compromised. I have had that in the past also.

I love this card-very masculine but also great for a woman too and love the silver bling. That is horrible what happened to you. This is why I am always so cautious about doing things like this on the internet. I am glad you were able to get it all rectified. I wonder if they will find out who did this. Did you call the cops or whoever takes care of this??
