First Christmas Card this year

I know that many of you have made a lot of your Christmas cards, but I am sure I am not alone in just starting.  I do have good intentions of starting early every year, but it seems like other card making gets in the way.   I have used this image before, but I might be able to find some one who did not receive it!
IRL the main image is nice and sparkly - I need something to get my order over the minimum for free postage (can you relate??) and I am so happy with it - a Spica.  I should have ordered more, including white. The only label on the stamp is Glad Tidings Cube.  I used SU Beyond the Basics, with light handed Garden Green, to stamp the bg.  For once I am pretty happy with that kind of bg stamping.  I added some silver edged gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty .TTP Dec2012

Lots of dots included on bg:
