Being Festively Floral

Good morning all!

Just one more month until Christmas,can you believe it? But first, we are celebrating Sinterklaas on the 5th of December. Although mainly a children's celebration, my hubs and me still make a little occasion out of it, with a lovely meal and some Sinterklaar snacks such as chocolate letters and speculaas. I might do a little baking as well, always fun :) We don't do cards for that occasion though, so I am sharing another Christmas card with you instead. My card ties in beautifully with this week's Delightful Challenge, which is themed 'Festively Floral'. I'm sure that when you think of flowers at Christmas time, the poinsettia comes to mind, but I found these red flowers while I was combing through my stash that I thought might work just as well. I feel it does, but I'll let you be the judge!
