First Christmas exploding box

I wanted to make something a bit different for a baby first Christmas card. I have made the exploding box using the technique under tutorials on my blog. I have made this box with the two biggest layers. I used patterned paper from a paper pad from The Range. The pad is 10cm x 10cm and called all is bright. I have used various die cuts on each panel. I have left two panels plain to add personalised sentiments at a later date. I have added the train in the centre of the box which is a tree decoration from The Range.

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