CHNC challenge 290: cute or anything goes as long as it's Christmas

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 290: cute or anything goes as long as it's Christmas. Please click on the link to find out what the challenge is all about and I'd love to see your entries there.

For the background of the card I used a piece of the cover of K & Co secret Santa 12 x 12 paper pad with a strip of sentiment card taken from a gift bag. The die cuts were created using todo cross hatch dies with the todo. The image is Robyn's Fetish snow cone, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of  CHNC challenge 290 (there are four other sponsors, so plenty of prizes to be won by randomly chosen winners), coloured with spectrum noir pens. This is an A5 tent style card.
