Shabby Christmas

Hi there, I'm feeling a bit Shabby Chic today,
so I've made a Christmas card in my mood.
The papers are from my favorite Christmas paper pack " Maja Designs Vintage Frost Basics"
I've distressed the edges of the paper and also the topper which comes with the pack, the stars are cut from some left over crackle card I made for another card, the candy canes are chipboard that i painted, I've used an Amy Design die with Kraft card, I also dry brushed this with white gesso, and there's a piece of cheesecloth under the topper. Some bright spark told me there is only 22 weeks before the C Word so I thought I would get cracking, I don't wont a repeat of last year where I actually had to buy some cards as I had sold mine and didn't have enough. 
I'm entering this in the following;
