A La Card Monkey Challenge 72....Christmas

This is my card for this week's A La Card Monkey Challenge which is a sketch plus the theme of Christmas.  The stamp set is retired SU Scandinavian Season.  I used SU Deck the Halls dsp which is also retired.  I stamped the images in ink combined with heat and stick powder sprinkled with glitter.
Unfortunately the glitter doesn't show up very well in the photo.  The sketch was originally A5 portrait but I've made it into a square card so as to give me more room to add my different elements.
Once again thank you for all the wonderful comments that are being left on my blog.  Very much appreciated.
Edited to add A La Card Monkey's link.  Sorry girls, I thought I had done it.
