Christmas approaching

Well, I know it's still almost 3 months until Christmas, but that time goes fast and I need to get started with my Christmas cards. Here's this years first:

These are the supplies I've used:

Paper: Bazzill Cardstock, Papirdesign "Hjertegod", Papirdesign "Julebukk", Graphic 45 "The Holly and the Ivy" and Panduro "Vintage Christmas - Faithful".

Stamps: The church is  from the set " Worship the Lord" by Our Daily Bread Designs. It was stamped with Tsukineko Versafine "Onyx black" and colored with promarkers. I've also added some white Flowersoft. Around the edges I've distressed with Ranger "Vintage Photo" distress ink. The little round stamp is called "Rund God Jul liten and is from Kreativ Hobby, and I've used another stamp from Kreativ Hobby on the inside called  "God Jul (gammel). Both were stamped with Tsukineko memento "Rich Cocoa". I've also stamped some Christmas carols from the set Julesanger by North Star Stamps, as well Heartfelt Creations' Elegant Corner. I stamped these with Ranger distress Embossing Ink, added some Ranger "Super fine detail -Gold" embossing powder and heated them up with my heatgun. 

 This is how it turned out on the inside.

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
Simon Say Stamps Challenge: Used dies and/or punches.
Wee Memories: Use patterned paper.
Freshly Brewed Challenges: Use something new. (I just got the God Jul stamps and the Julesanger stamps).
Creatalicious Challenges: Anything goes.

Thanks for looking!
