2 Sketches 4 You Christmas card and some more Happiness!

OH GEESH! Where do I start??? Okay I'll save the best for last...

First off, I went through my camera, fixed some stuff, got rid of some out of focus pictures that were taking up space and I got to fit some new card photos, so double YAY! :) here it is, it goes with the 2 Sketches 4 You (#13), and I know by NOOOO means I am up to their par over on that site, they are great card makers but I thought I would throw my hat in the basket anyway. Hope you like it!
It's a pretty simple card, white cardstock base, added some green holiday paper from the sale rack at HL, it just has holiday words all over it, I love that paper! I cute the tree on my cricut, it was supposed to be something else but I rounded the bottom with some curvey sheers and added buttons!
I figured I'd also make the whole thing look like a present so I added red swirly paper as a bow and the center of the bow is a white, square brad..
Side-ish view shows all the dimension, I popped the tree up on dots and the bow is really full of life :)
Another close up of the bow and my Merry Christmas writing, regular Gel white pen and a steady hand! :) And below is my card from the other day, the other picture was really bad so this is a better one, and I think I'm not liking the black so much so I may redo that with white or something else... :)
I just think it's missing something... any ideas?

Next is the completely awesome news! I won again! Can you believe it? Cause I sure can't! If you've never been to the Cosmo Cricket blog, you don't know what you've been missing! They have wonderful ideas, great stuff, giveaways, and jokes along the way! I love it... and I won all the stuff to do this crafty project.... I will be making this... or something very similar! :) And I will post it when it's done. And if that wasn't good enough they said .... I think the winner will also need Buck Naked Alphabuttons and Ornaments and something new to get excited about. I think maybe a Chemistry Paper Crafting kit would do the trick! So that's a lot of great goodies coming my way! I CAN'T WAIT! I'll post the pics when the stuff arrives! :) Now I need to check my lottery tickets!
