My first attempt at making a bauble decoration

I have used a MDF bauble. I have attached patterned paper with P.V.A glue. I gently filed the edges with a nail file. I added small white pom poms to the outside edge of the bauble and added a string of pearls using a glue gun. I die cut the building, lamp and tree with Marianne dies, Cheery Lynn die for the snowflakes and a Tattered Lace die for the poinsettia. I completed my creation with a pearl embellishment, pearl strand and ribbon 

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