O Bling-y tree

What's Christmas without a little bling? This card has lots of jewel-bling plus glittery EP.
The sketch is from Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch #221.  The tree is embossed with "pirate gold" EP which has glitter in it.  I added little gems to all the stars that are on the tree.
I'm not sure who made either the tree or the sentiment, also in the pirate's gold EP.
I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities in oval and scalloped oval, along with a scallop border die.  The gold paper is upcycled; I think it was first used inside an envelope -- it has been in my snippets file for ages.  The strip of printed paper is another snippet -- It jumped out of a folder and demanded to be used on this card.
I'm entering this card in these challenges:
Bugaboo -- Stella Says Sketch #221
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- Bling it on
Cuttlebug Mania -- anything Christmas
