Charisma Cardz Challenge DT - Easel Card

Morning All!!
Firstly let me apologize for my lack of blogging and visiting all of you, I've just been hectically busy!! Will try and catch up with all of you real soon. Well, I can't believe it's Thursday again and time for a brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz. This week the challenge has been set by our lovely Joanne who has chosen Easel Cards. Hope I don't bore you but I have attached quite a few pics as I'm rubbish at photographing easel cards, will have to get some practice in hehe. I've chosen to do another Christmas card with an image from Mo Manning which I absolutely luurrvvveeee, isn't she just gorgeous?!! Here is a close up of the sentiment which I cut out with nesties and sprayed with Irridescent glitter spray from Crafters Companion. The beautiful poinsettias are from wild orchid crafts and the lace from my stash.

The dps I have used are Papermania Christmas luxury laser card, really lush. It is an irridescent coated cardstock, looks almost holographic irl. The ribbon is from wild orchid crafts. I have coloured her in with ProMarkers. The trims of her gown I coated with glamour dust. The stocking she is holding got the full stickles treatment as did the lolly sticking out of the stocking and the fur on the top I used flowersoft. The giant snowflake is a die cut and coated with twinkles diamond dust. Don't think I could have got more sparkle lol!!!
I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Butterflies or lace
Wild Orchid Challenges - One for the girls
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Bring on the bling
Stampavie and more - Christmas in summer
