One Stitch at a Time Challenge 61

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want to see your fancy folds! That's right, not standard single fold cards - do something a bit different. Other than that, it's whatever you want! And we're sponsored by
This week, I had to choose an image from Reece's Scrap Pieces, and I decided to go for another Christmas themed digi. And I thought I'd have a go at a twisted easel style card.
 And so you can see the image more clearly,

The image (Oh Holy Night) is a combination of a picture and some word art. It's lovely, and while I chose to use soft colours for it, it would look great with vivid Christmas colours too. It's coloured with Promarkers, and I've added some detail and coloured the text with a Letraset silver marker, and added some Glamour Dust to the snow. The 'Merry Christmas' is computer generated, the papers are from a Papercraft Inspirations CD, and the snowflakes were cut using a Spellbinders die in my Wizard.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lothian Crafts Online who want easel cards,

Top Tip Tuesday who're having an open challenge,
