Christmas card with concert ticket

Today I made a last last minute Christmas card as I needed something to pack a present  -  a concert ticket for Bryan Adams, who will come to Germany again in March 2012. I wanted it to look nice...

I also tried real sewing with my mom's sewing machine for the first time. I have no clue how to use a sewing machine, so I got a small introduction from my mom and then I sew around the papers... It's not that uniform yet, but I made it.

Stamp: "Meet me under the Mistletoe" from Karen's Doodles
Sentiment: WordArt
Ink pad in hot pink
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell, Decorative Chalk from Joy Crafts
Sketch: Sweet Stop Sketches (last challenge)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Papers: dots & stripes from Crafts-Too
Punch: Marthat Stewart Boarder Punch Stars
Ribbon, stickles, gems, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
