Warmest Winter Wishes

I made this today, a very grunged up vintage Christmas card. The main image is from DezinaWorld, and other pieces came from cuddlebeez, mitsybelle, dorthi designs and SKrapper Digitals.
These are the challenges that I'm entering:
Magical Crafts - Christmas in July (don't forget to check out the new challenge blog that will be taking the place of Magical Crafts, Craft Your Days Away) I'm not eligible for the prize on this one, just entering for fun :)
Friends Having Fun - Christmas in July, long and narrow, and something from your home town or country. The vintage image in this is Victorian, I hope that counts as English. This also isn't excatly the right dimensions, but it is long and narrow.
Ready Steady Stamp - this is a new challenge for me, your entry musn't be cute, and you have to use at least five ingredients from a very cool list. My ingredients used are - music sheet, torn/distressed paper, pink, wings (I put a bird on the tag), pearls, metal flower and lace.
Moving Along with the Times - sketch + vintage pastel. I followed the sketch, and it's definitely vintage, but the pastel seems to have been grunged up enough to make it look dark, hopefully I'll get time to do a proper pastel one as well.
Charisma Cardz - anything but square
Aud Sentiments - choose your own Christmas sentiment
Raise the Bar - distressed torn ripped
PolkaDoodle - Christmas in July
Bah Humbug - Christmas scene
Fairy Fun Fridays - lace it up/use lace
Frosted Designs - use a song lyric. Not only the lyric, but the music as well on this one :P
