A Not Very Christmassy Christmas Card

This is my Dad's Christmas card, he doesn't 'do' Christmas at all really, so no point doing a traditional christmas card instead he normally gets either funny ones or ones with boats on, as he goes sailing. I did use christmas papers to piece together the scene and also added some snowflake stickers so it is a bit christmassy, the stickers have a bit of sparkle in them too and have added a gem in place of a flag at the top of the boat. Love making little scenes like this, they're so quick to do and can use up lots of scraps that would normally be stored for months and then eventually end up in the bin lol

Supplies: Papers by Bo Bunny, My Mind's Eye & 3 Bugs in a Rug, Card by Co-ordinations
Extras: Turquoise Ink Pad, White Card, Gem, Snowflake Stickers

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...
