Train Christmas card

The last couple of days I have lost my mojo so I had a little look for inspiration today. 

This is what I have just completed. 

I have never made Christmas cards early enough, so maybe this year I won't have to rush them!!

I have covered my 8x8in white card with spotty card from Anna Marie. I rounded the corner of the card stock and my card blank. I added a piece of white card on the bottom and then added a heart embellishment where the two papers meet. I die cut the train with a Marianne die. I have cut various dies to add to the train. The boat, duck and rattle are with Sue Wilson dies. The candy cane, lolly and gingerbread man are Xcut dies. I cut a white oval using a Presscut die and attached it to my card.I die cut the Merry Christmas in red and green card and slightly offset them when sticking them to the white die cut oval.      

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
