I've coloured her with my Copics and added touches of glitter, then cut her out with one of the dies in Marianne Design set LRO279 - Petra's Ornaments. I must admit that it is a die set that I rarely use, I got it because I loved the samples that I saw .. .. but then it's stuck at the back of the box. This is the plainer backing die I've used here, and I think works and gives a bit of added interest without having to do lots of matting and layering. What do you think?

It's another 5"x7" in landscape and I've used a rather busy paper matted with plain green card then kept embellishments to a minimum in the hope it'll go through the narrow post slot. The ric rac is the last sparkly bit in my stash so I will have to look out for some more, then I've die cut the trees, holly sprays and flowers, and finished off with lots of pink gems. Oh, and I nearly forgot the little die cut bow, it and the flowers are cut from pearl paper so have some shimmer to them too.
The Marianne Design dies I used to embellish this card were:
Righteo, I have found a couple of challenges I can enter with my card, Fab 'n' Funky is anything Christmas, and at Die Cutting Divas it's anything goes. Oh! and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge theme is 'stick it down' - yep, it's all stuck down!
Thank you for stopping by to take a peek, I hope you will come back again!
