My new Christmas Dies

Thought I would do another Christmas Card today, now I'm not sure why but nothing is turning out like the ideas in my head, so another one I'm not totally happy with, just wish I could my finger on what it is I'm not happy with.  

Anyway for this card I have used two of my new Marianne dies, which are so lovely, I added some peel offs to the sled, and also the borders of the main card, then used my MS Star border punch on gold mirri and and added some gold/blue glitter ribbon for the central band, my BP is from a Debbi Moore CD, and i've used a Darice snowflake embossing folder on some cored'inations card. the five stars at the bottom are the pieces from the Star punch used across the centre and top.  Thanks for looking.
