Not a Christmas card!

Came across an interesting challenge the other day and decided to have a go at it.
Using the colours red and green, make a non-Christmas card!
So here's my attempt.

Colour combo is Cherry Cobbler and  Garden Green with very Vanilla
The background is stamped in Cherry Cobbler using the Creative Elements stamp set.
Used the Lattice Bigz die and then used all the leaf shapes cut out of it
to make the leaves for the 4 points of the trellis and the corners.
Sentiment is from Tiny Tags.
Flowers are made using the 1.1/4" Scallop punch, centres are diagonal fringed flowers in Very Vanilla
and the corner flowers are cut with the Itty Bitty flower punch and VV "knots" in the centres.
With the exception of the red pearls (which are from my stash)
all products used are Stampin' Up.

I would like to enter this in the
