Merry Christmas......{PKS Challenge}

Hi everyone!!
I wanted to pop in to share a card I made for the new Peachy Keen Stamps challenge that started this morning!
This week's challenge is the sketch shown below...
And here is my take on it...I hope you like it!!
My card is a 4x9 base long card using Echo Park's 'Tis the Season paper pack.
I just LOVE this paper!!! 
I added my layers of the pattern paper and then using my sewing machine added a decorative zig zag stitch around the outside. The Christmas tree is actually a file from SVG Cutting Files~Kawaii Holiday Lollipop Covers. I ended up using the layers for the tree alternating the pattern paper with the green cardstock.
For the star on top I used the new Peachy Keen Stamps Nov SOTM set and the matching SVG. After cutting the star using my cameo, I stamped the stitched star on the pattern paper and then popped it up on top of the tree.
Then for the sentiment I used the Peachy Keen Stamps~ Christmas Tag Minis set stamped on a My Creative Time banner die from the Just Simply Live set.
Here is another angle of the card so you can see the dimension the Christmas tree has. 
For the additional embellishing, I added some Totally Black Trendy Twine and some flat back green and red pearls.
So there is my card based on the sketch. I hope you have enjoyed it!
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you all have a GREAT night!!!!
