CHRISTMAS DOVE

Hi all, I apologise for my lack of visiting but I have not been well, I did manage to make this card today, I just wanted to do something spontaneous, I had a fancy to try out the quilting effect which is the theme over at ABC Christmas challenges.
I have used a 6x6 Kraft base card, the red card is textured and I used a MS around the page punch, I topped the red card with silver textured card, the papers are Basic Grey, I used faux stitching in between the LO, I have used my Woodware Dove stamp inked with Momento Black Tuxedo, coloured with promarkers then cut it out, finally I added a Memory Box Christmas Wreath and a Dufex Silver sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I am hoping to start to do some commenting tonight but please bear with me.  I really thank you for your loyalty while I have been absent.
