Charisma Cardz and Allsorts Challenges

Hi everyone,
Maybe just the one post for today - Grand Prix to watch!

I saw the challenge at Charisma Cardz and liked the sound of the colours but never anticipated being able to do a Christmas Card. Whilst looking through my papers for inspiration I came across a 12 x 12 paper with just the right colours in it so that started me off.
Then I chose the sketch from Allsorts, as shown below.
They also wanted you to use torn edges so I have used a backing paper from the Crafter's Companion Festive Occasions CD and used this as the two panels on the card. I stamped the image onto lemon coloured mulberry paper which was from my stash (can't remember where it came from though) and backed this on to white card to show up the lemon colour. The sentiment is a ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and I used snowflakes to go across the top to fit in with the sketch. I'm really not sure about this one - please let me know what you think guys!!
