Christmas card club 2016 challenge 7 - use a stencil or embossing folder

I am a day late making my card for the Christmas card club.  I lost track of the days again.
I have used a stencil
Sponged Distress ink over Tim Holtz Poinsettia stencil and along edges.
Added washi tape and layered all onto red card

If you would like to see the cards by the other members of the Christmas card club their names are listed down the left side of my blog.

I would like to enter this card into
Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes
