Joyful Christmas for Merry Mondays

I had about an hour left to get this posted To the Merry Mondays Challenge when I started this card.  I don't know if I'll make it! I decided to turn the card because I had two of these big (5 x 7) natural colored cards (with matching envelopes), and when I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to use the poinsettia from the Joyful Christmas set.  I also knew I wanted to emboss the flower (and I know it's hard to tell, but there are two layers on this flower. The smaller set of leaves in the middle is separately stamped, embossed, cut out and popped up).  I used my gold gel pen on the berries in the flower, my gold ink pad for the sentiment, and skinny strips of gold paper on the left.  On the inside of the card is the longer sentiment from the set.

Simple but cute... now.... did I make it in time?

Thanks for looking!
