Christmas tree card with ornaments

I am trying to get my Christmas cards made early this year.
I made this card today

I printed A Day for Daisies digital stamp "Vintage Tree party" onto white and coloured with markers, chalks and glitter pens.  Added washi tape.  Punched Stampin Up ornaments and attached, drew streamer across top with glitter pen.  Added glitter pen to the ornaments but it doesn't show up in the scan.  Layered all onto red card.

I will put this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas card challenge No 161 - trees

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Christmas Card challenges - Anything goes

Merry Monday Christmas challenge - ornaments

Decosses Dynamite Doodles 12 months of Christmas challenge
