Secret santa card swap

Hello all I hope you are all feeling well and are not too stressed out with all the Christmas preparations.
I must admit I am feeling a little bit more on top of things this week and think I am a bit more back on track now, although I still haven't managed to make time to spend in my craft room. I break up from work next Friday and have earmarked some craft time in the following week when everyone else is still at work! Lets see how that works out!!
This card was made to send to one of my DT teamies over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends as a Secret Santa swap. I know she received it ok so am able to show it to you now.
I used a cute little stamp which came with a magazine and coloured it in with Promarkers. I added a small glitter covered chipboard Christmas tree that I bought at a local craft fair and punched the top strip with a Martha Stewart punch. The paper was from a Forever Friends set and I embossed a white panel for the bottom of the card and tore the edge to give a snowy effect. I punched some snowflakes adding gems to the middle and lots of glitter finished it all off:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
