The Glory of Christmas: anything goes

It's time for a new challenge on The Glory of Christmas: anything goes. Please visit and see what the rest of the team have created and, hopefully, join in - please make sure you acquaint yourself with the rules first - there is a rule change: you can now combine with more than 4 other challenges.

I based my card on the sketch for Always playing with paper Merry Monday 72:

I created the background by inking Papermania Urban stamp 'home for Christmas (homespun)' with memento cottage ivy. This is such a large stamp (larger than the card blank, that I laid the card on to the stamp and brayered it. The flowers are from assorted packs of Holiday Elements by Little Birdie, layered on to a die cuts. Sentiment and ribbon from stash.
