Christmas chocolate and Christmas card

Hello! Yesterday, when I went to one of the stores in the city centre I noticed they are already rady for Christmas. I could already buy Christmas decorations, Christmas candy ... I do like Christmas, A LOT, but that's still a little bit early for me. Still, I couldn't resist and I had to buy something. Look what I spoiled myself with ...
Tell me, how am I supposed to resist a Christmassy Milka chocolate, when it has nuts, pieces of orange and cinnamon inside. Plus, it's MILKA, my favourite chocolate. So it was impossible for me not to buy it. And I'm very happy I did, because it's probably the best Milka I've ever eaten (needless to say it's already gone). It's sooooooooo good!!! I'm planning to go and buy a few more on Thursday when I'm in the area again. And I will hide those from myself til Christmas, because I want to eat this yummy chocolate on my favourite holiday. :)

Speaking about Christmas ... I also want to show you a Christmas card that I made. It's a pretty simple card really.

I used the stamp which came with the set that I got from my friend last Christmas. I embossed it with queen's gold embossing powder and around it I stamped with two different snowflake stamps. The dotty paper is from Folia. The white paper is just a regular white cardstock, which I embossed with TH snowflake embossing folder. The ribbon is from Crafty ribbons (available here) and the twine is from my stash. I used my carft punch to make snowflakes and in the middle of each snowflake I glued a small crystal. I also used my border punch.

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