Happy Easter and a Christmas Card!

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you haven't all overdone it on the chocolate!  I had the family round for lunch, followed by an egg hunt for my wee boy, the sun has even managed to shine!
Rather unseasonally, I have a Christmas card to share today, using my new Papermania, Craft Collection, Pastels papers from the latest Docrafts goody bag.  They aren't Christmas papers, but the blue ones made me think of winter woolies, so I decided to take the festive route with them.
 The image was stamped with a Marianne stamp that came free with a magazine ages ago, I coloured it with Promarkers and added a little Star Dust Stickles to the ice.  I punched the bottom of the topper with an Argyle pattern EK Success punch, and backed it onto blue paper from the Papermania pack mentioned above.  I then made a little tassel embellishment and wrapped the topper with baker's twine, before sticking it to the card base, which had been matted and layered with more of the Papermania papers.
To finish off, I stamped a sentiment and die cut it into a tag shape, added a row of Cosmic Shimmer white PVA dots along the bottom of the card, and fussy cut a couple of stars from one of the sheets of paper to use as embellishments.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges-
