DT piece for Christmas Fun

A few changes again over on Christmas Fun Challenge Blog. It will now be a monthly challenge with a small blog candy, with mid monthly inspiration from the DT.
The theme for April is Christmas Card for a Man.
I ran a piece of white card through my GC with a cog Christmas tree mask (can't remember who made the mask :/ ). While the mask was still in place I inked through it using frayed burlap Distress Ink. Matted & layered onto green then red card.
Die cut the sentiment using Tonic's Christmas Cracker Die from the red card, which I then cut so I could place on each side of card. 
Used some Ranger Sepia Accents in the centre of the cogs, added a red felt stag that was from Hobbycraft.
I think the cog tree is quite masculine and decided not to use much glitter so think the sepia accent adds just enough bling. 

I have entered this in:
