Challenge 12 at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Can you believe that two months today it will be Boxing Day?? Oh my goodness, where does the time go? I may not be ready for Christmas but at least i've got lots of Christmas cards made. Have you made a start on yours yet? I'm sure when you've seen Betina's gorgeous sketch over at Christmas Challenges {with sketches} you'll be inspired to join in and make a card or two.

As always we have a fab prize for our winner and this week our sponsor is 'Sew Many Cards'

Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and check out Betina's gorgeous sketch and find out more about the prize too!!

Anyway back to my card. I've used a seriously cute stamp from Nellie Snellen called 'Hokey Pokey Dawn', she is coloured with promarkers and liberally glamour dusted for some Christmas sparkle.
 I've die cut her with nesties labels 4.

The pressie bp is from an old dovecraft pad. I've added a doiley from my stash and a couple of pieces of card made using starbust stains and mica powders. The sparkly ribbon and lace are from my stash and the sentiment is a Crafters Companion stamp. The main pic is very dark, its so hard to get a decent photo now the days are so dark and dull but this pic shows the colours a little better as the card is actually much paler IRL.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Inspirations: die cuts or punches
Little Claire's : Christmas
The Squirrel and The Fox: one for the girls
Totally Gorjuss: pastel Christmas
Totally Papercrafts: layer on layer

Thanks for calling by today
