comments from Laurie:

NYC has the Rockefeller Center Tree, but London has the lights on Regent Street. Inspired by their banners of twinkling tiny blue lights scattered with sparkling snowflakes.

There's just a lot going on here and the contrast is distracting. Everything is fighting for your attention. Try to simplify.

Thanks for the feedback. Any better?

I really like it because it uses black not a conventional christmas color. Also the black makes the picture even more bright!

although the black offers a nice contrast, I feel like the focus is too much on the snowflake border and the swashes of scriptina.. the family photo is kind of lost here

reading the comments, it could work if you did a tone on tone with the snow flake design. It would be more subtle and still classy.
