Christmas Guinea pig

Hello today to all my friends and followers, hoping this finds you all well.
So, another weekend has flown by and Christmas is just around the corner-decorations went up yesterday. I always love this time of year as it reminds me of when my Nan used to come and stay for the holidays when we were little. My sister and I used to spend the journey to collect her counting houses with decorations up-happy memories!
I am so behind though with everything and am beginning to feel a little bit under pressure now-I haven't even made it to my craft table for days and have slipped very far behind with all my blog visits and comments so I hope everyone forgives me and bears with me for now as I will get myself back on track I promise!
My card today is for a guinea pig keeper and I just thought this image was so cute-I found it on a kids colouring website and coloured it in with Promarkers, adding some glossy accents to his nose and glitter to the box. The papers are from Nitwit and the little wooden star is from Hobbycraft. I punched out four corners from Kraft card with a hobbycraft punch and reversed them to put into each corner and added a die cut Christmas tree using a metal die I received from a magazine. I added a couple of red gems to finish off:

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