MAWTT challenge Someone Special at Christmas

This week's challenge at Moving Along With The Times is to make a CHRISTMAS CARD but with a twist - it must be for SOMEONE SPECIAL and make reference to it on the front :D
I decided to keep the sentiment open-ended so I can write inside (husband / daughter / son / etc).
I used my "antique silhouette cameo" also known as "CRAFT KNIFE" (lol) to cut out the tree and popped it up from the opening with foam tape.
The image is from Meljen's Designs: http://www.meljensdesigns.com/christmas-tree/
I love that font!! It's called Angelic War and I saw now that it perfectly mimics Melissa's characteristic twirls :D
