Christmas and chipboard

This is the second Christmas card I have made and I decided to use "chipboard" on this one.

I've never used chipboard before and didn't have any of the really thick chipboard, so I cut up an empty cereal box and used my Sizzix Big Shot to die cut the chipboard to make the wreaths and frame for my sentiment. I painted the chipboard with white acrylic paint and let it dry. I then sponged versa color ink followed by Tim Holtz distress ink over the painted chipboard, sprayed with a little water and let dry. I finally stamped Christmas decorations over the chipboard, glued on some flowers and attached to my card.

Here is my card:
