Home for Christmas

When I saw the prompt for Pinspirational 195, I thought straight away of a Hunkydory topper that I knew I had somewhere. I have a few boxes with Christmas stuff ... eventually I found it and so I've used it on this card. I backed it with a dark blue snowflake piece of card, backed on to a pearlescent red card blank. I added a piece of glittered washi tape across the top, a  sentiment 'A very Happy Christmas' across the topper and some punched snowflakes using some silver mirror card snippets.

This is the prompt picture for Pinspirational 195:

and here is my card (very difficult to get a photo ... tried several times ... because of the foiling, including silver foiling on the car that doesn't show up):
