Oh Christmas Tree....

Evening Folks
Well it has certainly felt a lot chillier today.  But on the plus side it is Friday so no work for two days.  Good job really as I still have quite a few christmas cards to make.  Just spent an age doing some online shopping for presents.  Got a good bit ordered but not looking forward to the mammoth job of wrapping them.  Hopefully will be able to rope the eldest daughter in to help me out.
Here is another christmas card that I completed today.
I bought the christmas tree stamp last year and thought it was about time I used it, lol.  The stamp is from Woodware.  I stamped the image onto white card and then onto patterned paper.  I then glued the pattern pieces on to create a bit of a three dimensional effect.  The sentiment was in the same stamp set.  The papers are from Hot Off The Press and feature lots of christmas tree baubles which I thought was appropriate to complement the tree.  Added a flower, ribbons (brown and cream across the card and a ribbon bow), buttons and some glitter for finishing touches.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake - use sketch
The Crafty Pad - use 3 papers, 3 brads or buttons, 3 ribbons

Thanks for looking and would appreciate any comments.  Still not sure about this one.  Can't put my finger on why I am unsure about it but any feedback would be appreciated.

Fabulous card Mags, love the tree and great layout...I will have to start my Christmas cards much earlier next year, not going to get them all done now.
