Season's Greetings

Happy Wednesday!  Or should I say Happy 1st day of December!  Are you ready for Christmas?  I'm not!  I will admit it gleefully.  Okay maybe not so happily because I do have tons to do before it arrives.  I promised DD that I would set the tree up and she could decorate it this weekend.  I just couldn't muster the energy last weekend.  Instead, I procrastinate by spending time designing cards and altered items.  In my mind, I have been on Christmas for months now.  I am trying to remember the reason for the season so to speak and focus on family.
This is a gift card I made for a Not So Secret Santa swap I am in.  My partner loves vintage and I knew the Melissa Frances papers would be perfect.  I used craft cardstock as my base and then piled on some MF goodies.  Of course I needed some shimmer!  The blue star is AC cardstock.  I put a ribbon of Martha Stewart glitter around the journal tag and then cut down a MF ticket sentiment for the center. 
Here is the inside of the card laying flat:

I made a pocket which you kinda see better in this picture but it's turned on it's side so be forewarned.

My card is for the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T.: "Christmas Presents"
Card Patterns: #92 "Sketch"
City Crafter:#33 "Blue Christmas"
Crafty Creations: #96 "Gift Card Holder"
Paper Play: #47 "Stars"
Pollycraft: "Chipboard" Journaling tag
Tuesday Throwdown: "Embellish"
