Christmas card for a pre-schooler

Good morning everyone! This is my first try with a side step card, just love the shape of it. I used Bonnies fab tutorial, she makes wonderful cards.
This card is for a pre-schooler and as a pre-schooler I loved all things glittery, so I´ve been very generous with the glitter... and everything else too. Don´t know why and I´m not so sure of the result, but I think a pre-schooler could love it. I´ll make a second one, but keep it a bit cleaner, a lot more cleaner, hehe.

I have used Rangers Stickles and snow white glitter from Panduro. The image and the lovely tree are Penny Black (thanks Simon Says!), the Christmas presents are Magnolia. The snowflakes are Cuttlebug. Ribbon, stars, heart and green staplers are from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the decor paper I made with different ink pads.

Hope you all get some sun today! It´s rainy and cloudy here again. But we did have a wonderful and sunny day yesterday. This November has been so dark, until Friday we have had only 3,8 hours of sun according to a friend. Well it´s that time of the year :)

Take care,
