Oh I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day...!

No not really but I do really love Christmas, it's more the getting ready for it that I enjoy. I spied the new First Edition festive pads and had to have one even though it's only July and I have loads of old Christmas papers AND I felt I needed a few of the new Memory Box Christmas dies so made first festive card for 2013...also using up a Wee Stamps topper from last year...

Image - from the Wee Stamps Winter Fairy topper sheet by The Hobby House
Paper - Nordic Christmas by First Edition
Button - The Ribbon Girl (I think?)
Lace - can't remember but it's beautiful
Pearls - stash
Other - Precious Mittens Memory Box die, scallop circle Nestabilities die, kraft cardstock, brown chalk ink pad

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