Spotty Christmas

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and it's my turn to host this week, our theme for you is lots of Spots and I've made quite a traditional card:

I have used an image from the Docrafts Papermania Classic Christmas collection and my papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Vintage Christmas collection.  I have layered the image on some red Mirri and then onto some Kraft card stock that I have also used for my base layer.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and a strip of the Dovecraft paper for the central border and die cut a corner and Poinsettia to embellish.

This is the inside of my card:
