Christmas Blessings

Hello everyone. Hope your day is a good one.
I am trying to decide what I want to do for my Christmas cards and this is in the running. I am having a hard time picking one so I may make a few different cards.

For this card I used a beautiful images from Stampin' Up! called Bells and Boughs and the sentiment is from Star Studded Season.
The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers: YR23, YR24, YR31, G20, G21, G24, R43, R46, R89. I sponged the image with Distressed Ink Antique Linen while it was still in the Classic Circle Nestability and layered it on Brushed Gold and Cherry Cobbler. The designer paper is Basic Grey Holly Berries.
I wanted to add some sparkle so I layered that on some Metallic Gold ribbon from Michaels and layered that on Garden Green and punched the bottom edge with Martha Stewart's Holly border punch. For some texture I embossed the Cherry Cobbler with a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder.
I stamped the sentiment directly on the designer paper and added a bit more sparkle with a Gold Spica Glitter Pen and some Swarovski Crystals.
