It's beginning to look a lot like ... Christmas!

Yes... the lovely ladies over at Crafting by designs, 
asked me to be a guest designer for this fab challenge ... 
we are "getting ready for christmas!"
So, this is the card I came up with...

And here is a close up...

How lovely is that image?
It's from "Make it Crafty"... I won this stunner, on their challenge blog
a little while ago and have been waiting to use this image. 
I coloured the image with my promarkers
and added a little stickles icicles to the wreath and garland..although
you can't see that on the picture.
Glossy accents made the red ribbons and the light of the lanterns, look shiny.
After being matted on red, to lift the image, I sat the whole thing
on embossed snowflakes.... an embossing folder which I haven't used for a couple of years..
thought it could do to show its face again!
(you can see them better on the close up pic.)
