Three challenges in one card

I must admit this was not as easy as it looks getting all the elements required for these challenges. However, I did it and again enjoyed the process. The challenges are as follows:-

One Stop Craft Challenge ( ) where you had to use the theme 'Christmas in July' .
Pile It On ( ) where you have to use watercolours on your project.
Finally, Moving Along with the Times ( ) where the theme is 'Cute as a button' and there is a sketch to follow as shown. There has to be at least one button on the card.

I have used Papermania papers on the outside. The image is from the Craft UK 'Christmas Collection' of stamps and is coloured in using Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils and some glitter baubles. The tag on the outside is from MCS 'A Classic Christmas' and has a button in the top right hand corner.
I really hope everyone likes the card and I would appreciate your views.
