Christmas Fireplace

I picked up the Crafter's Companion Christmas Fireplace die set in the sale recently, and now that things have settled back into normal routine again, and I've got a bit of time to craft again, I had a chance to play with my lovely new dies and make this simple card to pop away for the end of the year.
 The patterned paper for the wallpaper and carpet are Papermania, Victorian Christmas, although these ones don't have a Christmas pattern on.  I covered the card blank with grey pearl card from Anna Marie Designs, and used the same for the fireplace, the rest of the card and paper used for die cutting was from my scrap box.  I added a touch of various Distress Inks here and there, sometimes stenciling through the dies, and finished with blobs of Nuvo Crystal Drops to add berries to the wreath and garland.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Holly Jolly Christmas - #63 - Use Designer Paper
Craft Your Passion - #295 - Anything Goes
Simply Papercraft - #21 - Anything Goes
