Scrapbooking Top 50 December challenge

I decided to have a go at the challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50 this month, given it is a Christmas inspired challenge.
I loved the earthiness and rustic appeal of this moodboard. I had a photo of a Santa life art statue taken in the city, that I thought might be good for this challenge. However, I didn't have much in the way of wood inspired objects that would work. I altered a piece of music patterned paper with gesso, ink, stamping and crackle texture paste. I had a sheet of Kaisercraft stickers, a few years old now, and these worked well, so I took the inspiration for my layout from the flowers. I cut the stickers in half and layered them around the photo. I then found some wood veneer baubles and a star, and that gave me the wood element I was looking for. I think it turned out ok. 
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
