CHNC challenge 119: use the word 'Christmas'

It's an easy challenge this week for my CHNC challenge 119 - just make sure you use the word 'Christmas' on the front of the card - you can use any other words if you like, but please make sure you use the word 'Christmas' - 'simples' as the meerkats would say.

For my card I followed the sketch for Merry Monday 56 (Always playing with paper):

I used My Mind's Eye papers from the 6 x 6 pad 'lost & found Christmas'.

I had some dies on order that I knew would be just right for this sketch and was hoping that they would come in time and they arrived this morning. However careful I am when I try to make the 'fishtails' they never come out as well as I would like, so when I saw these dies I couldn't resist buying them and I know already how useful they are going to be:

I edged all papers with copic sepia E37. I've used a kraft card blank.

Colours are for play date cafe challenge 176:
