CAS Christmas take two

Good morning fellow bloggers. I hope I find you well. 
Have you finished all your card making for the Christmas period? If not why not join us at Fantasy Stampers for our CAS Christmas challenge, just the chance to make a quick card before the deadline for posting!
Here is a card that I rustled up from odds and sods from the bits box with a nod to a couple of challenges.

I think that using a challenge or two to focus the brain is a good idea. 
The tag was stamped with Stampendous Christmas Background in DI then inked to give a bit of a vintage feel. The poinsettia was cut using a Lea'bilities die and edged in more DI.
I splashed a bit of water on the tag to give it a further aged look and splattered a bit of DI as well onto the base card. I also added some stars and sequins from the stash. The greeting was stamped then embossed in gold.
I shall enter the following challenges:-

Virginia's View -  All things distressed

Thanks for popping around.
Don't forget Fantasy Stampers is just a regular stamping challenge, no digis allowed!
