Totally Papercrafts DT - Untraditional Christmas Colours

Good Morning Everybody! Hope you've all had a great week, I can't help but say that mine has been fantastic!! I'm having an absolute ball at the CRAFTAGANZA, never made so many cards in one day lol! I have also met some wonderful people here but my absolute favourite has to be Jacqui Dennis! She is one of the nicest people I've ever met, an absolute angel and she's taken me in under her wing, thanks Jacs!! Anyway, think I've waffled enough so onto today's card which is for a brand new challenge week over at Totally Papercrafts and the theme has again been chosen by me which is Untraditional Christmas Colours. When I saw this little sweetie on the Digi Bells blog I just knew I had to have her immediately, isn't she just the sweetest? How talented is Elisabeth Bell?!

As always I have coloured her in with my Copics and used glamour dust galour hehe! I then used some shimmer chalk to edge the image so there's definately no shortage of sparkle on this one! The dps are all from the new Christmas range by Magnolia and are really lush, think I need to order a load more lol! The doily behind the image is from Joanna Sheen and the snowflakes are from a MS punch topped with a gem from my stash. The ribbon is also from my stash. I will be entering my card into the following challenges :

The Digi Bells - November blog hop (make a Christmas card)

A spoonfull of Sugar - Anything goes

Digital Tuesday - Let it snow

Fussy and fancy - Christmas with no red & green

Simon Says - Let it snow
