Spoonfull of Sugar #3

Here's my card for this weeks Spoonfull of Sugar challenge, 3-2-1 "We would like you to use a Recipe, 3 brads or buttons, 2-pattern papers and 1 flower."
I'v used the Simon and Lola image coloured with watercolour pencils and some Doodlebug papers. Then I bent the rules slightly as I technically used leaves and not a flower but I keep them in the same box! Then I used 3 brads as holly berries. This is also my final card for this months Fab's Christmas Challenge. Thanks for looking!
