O Christmas Tree

Morning everyone... hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
We have a bit of blue sky here in Yorkshire, but it's pretty cold and windy out there.
A good day for staying inside and cooking and crafting.
Hopefully I will have some treats to show you later :-)
Here's a card I made yesterday - I tried something a little different.

I layered my card and design paper up and stitched it in place. I cut some trees with my Slice machine and added them with foam tape. The paper is glittery already, but I sprinkled on a little extra and stuck on some adhesive pearls. I stamped the Merry Christmas text.
It needed something adding in the corner, but I just didn't know what! I ended up cutting a small tag and adding the bow, snowflake and button. I'm not really sure it works - especially the colour! What do you think?

Challenges - 
ABC Christmas - T is for Tree, with an optional extra of 'buttons'.

Here's a close up -   it's hard to see, but there is a lot of sparkle and glitter on this card.

Slice machine - trees and snowflake were cut with design card 'Fa La La'.
Snowflake was covered with diamond dust, trees with stickles and adhesive pearls.
Martha Stewart 'Arch Lattice' border punch.
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye, Signature Christmas.
Merry Christmas stamp is Catslife Press.
