Light up tree decoration

I have used a template from Simply Cards and papercraft to make this tealight birdhouse. I have used patterned paper from a Trimcraft Gilded Winter 12x12in paper pad. . I used a Xcut scalloped circle die to cut the window. I die cut poinsettia with Tattered Lace dies and star sprays with a Sue Wilson die. I added berries, ribbon and flat backed pearl embellishments. Finally I added a battery operated tea light. 

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