Charisma Cardz - Christmas!

Good Morning!
Thank you for all the comments on my recent baking, it certainly helps my confidence so today I shall be trying Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies ... of course I will share the results with you ;)
Today's card is for CHARISMA CARDZ where our new challenge is Christmas! I decided to push myself a little on this and use a scene stamp instead of a character one as I don't usually like them as the main feature ... well I have to admit I totally changed my opinion and I LOVE this card! lol I also used a sentiment stamp that is usually gathering dust with it which has also made me like it a little bit more!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
TOP TIP TUESDAY - CHRISTMAS
RIBBON GIRLS MONTHLY CHALLENGE - HO! HO! HO!

Incase you wondered I have used Distress Ink with a Water Brush to create the blue sky...
