Incy Wincy Christmas

Here's a Christmas Card for a whole lotta Christmas Challenges!
I used a Stampin up set called "Classic Pickups" with the sentiment from another SU set called "Loads of Love".
I got to thinking about Christmas Cards & thought of my father-in-law who is a single, elderly man! What kind of card would he like, A fluffy little girl, or a Manly Classic Pickup. I figured the latter since he still likes to play with his toys (bobcats, backhoes) & fiddle around with vehicles!!
 He's where my hubby gets his handyman life skills from & for that I am thankful!!

Challenges for my card:
Incy Wincy- blast from the past
Bah! Humbug- Ribbon
Winter Wonderland- sketch (I flipped it all the way around)
