My final 2014 Christmas card

Here is my final 2014 Christmas card - for my OH.   I've used the stamp he bought me for my birthday as he's always said he loves the cards I make with it - I hope he means it!  I made this for the final 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge of the year which is to pick any challenge from 2014 - I've chosen the March Theme Challenge - Stars.  It also fits with the last Crafty Cardmakers challenge of the year which is 'Christmas'.

Woodware Bubble Bloom - Festive Tree
Docrafts Me to You sentiment stamps 
Crafts-Too Twinkle embossing folder
Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
Diamond Stickles
Wink of Stella pen
Card Candi - Westminster
Gold nail heads
Gold mirri card 

I embossed a piece of white card with stars, layered it onto gold mirri card and attached it to the card front.  The tree was stamped onto white card, layered onto gold mirri and attached to the left side of the card.  I decorated the tree with Candi, nail heads and Stickles, adding a Wink of Stella on the tree trunk and branches.   The sentiment was stamped onto white card, layered onto gold mirri and attached to the card front with foam pads.
