2 challenges for this card

Bah! Humbug  Baubles and Crafty Anns challenge Metalic
This challenge is Baubles Which really posed a problem for me. The only bauble I could find is a peel off
so my entire card is made from peel offs, I did stick the bauble to some card to give it more dimension and on the whole I think it is not to bad. I have never made a card entirely of peel offs before. The top border doesn't look very straight in the photo, but it is.I hope you like it.
