Merry Christmas Teacher

Hello, hope you are all keeping cozy and snug if it's cold where you are at the moment! It's freezing here in the Midlands so lot's of craft time I think! 
Here are 2 cards I have made for Harvey's Teachers and I think they turned out really cute. 
This one I went for a more traditional look using reds, greens and Golds and the old fashioned pic of Saint Nick himself!
For my second card I wanted a more modern contemporary look so I used purples, silver and blue and really like the look of this one. The birds are cut out from an old DCWV mat stack sorry I can't remember the name. I then punched out some silver branches using my Ms branch punch and added them around the frame.
I have used the 'Merry Christmas Teacher huge circle set available here from The Cutting Cafe' on both cards. I also used the largest scalloped circle nesties for the base of the cards.
I am entering  one or both of these cards into the following challenges:
