Lily's traditional Christmas

Good morning crafty friends - I hope you're all well and happy. I'm feeling very chilly - autumn really is setting in now isn't it?

Today I've got another Christmas card to share with you - this time its a traditional colours one but with a cute image - from LOTV:

I stamped and coloured the image using promarkers and glitter and cut out using a spellbinders die and used another to add the scalloped edge. The background paper was made using the reverse of century pearl card that I stamped on in versa marks and added clear embossing powder and heat set - then I added pine needles DI direct to paper and smudged it all in and buffed up the snowflakes - then I simply matted and layered it onto a card with the ribbon, sentiment and gems added.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
