Merry Monday Christmas card challenge

Always Playing with Paper Merry Monday Christmas card challenge No 61
This is the sketch for this week
 This my card
This sketch was right out of my comfort zone as I usually like to fill a card not leave so much blank space.
I have added washi tape to red card and stamped Sampalot Victoria's Secret "Happy Christmas".  Stamped Christmas tree from Forever Friends "Cosy Christmas" clear stamp set with green distress ink onto white card and added rhinestones, layered onto red card.
I cleaned the screen on my scanner but it is still leaving marks on the scan so must be inside somewhere.
