Christmas Card Challene over at Creative Cutting Challenge

Can you believe today is the 1st day of December!?!! Good Morning and back to work we go! Darn that holiday didn't last long enough but was glad for the time off and got a few layouts done. But today it's all about the Card! Christmas Card I made for the Creative Cutting Challenge with Creative Pointe's Merry Cardinal Charger file:
This file was for an 13" charger plate but I was able to simply size it down for the 6" square card. The file I used:
Merry Cardinal Charger - Click Image to Close
I cut this out prior to the holiday, but just recently put it together and I seem to lost 2 pieces but was able to cover the losses well:
I colored in the black neck of the cardinal with a black sharpie and the A in Christmas was replaced with a snowflake.
 I stickled up alot of the cute pieces with Holly and Christmas Red.
 I added a couple more snowflakes from the K&Company very merry snowflakes layered accents package.The papers I used was the cardstocks from last month's counterfeit kit and the background papers are from teresa collins Christmas Home 6X6 pack.
I also dressed up the inside a bit with that same green paper and the same diagonal border paper and a couple of snowflakes. All from my current Dec Daily kit.
 Off you go and give a try to the challenge we hope you all play along with us:
