Christmas Bell card

Good evening All, I hope you are All keeping well, We have had rain again today, oh for some sunshine. My card today is a Bell shaped Christmas card, made so if you want to hang it up it looks like a decoration, the bell size is about A6. I have used a vintage Santa image papers from a christmas cd rom, I have used peel off borders and gold ribbon from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Rain here as well all day Kevin, I begin to wonder if we will ever actually see sunshine, I think we all need some, it will cheer us all up.

I really love the unique shape of your card, so very seasonal and the traditional colours never fail to please.

Hope you have a relaxing weekend and some sunshine.
