Christmas Challenge (with sketches) #3

I can't believe we're onto the third challenge already! We had some wonderful entries last time, keep it up and you'll have a box of cards made in no time. 
We are using Nicole's sketch this time and if you pop over to CCWS you'll be able to see it for yourself. This is my card:

Backing paper is a free download I've had for ages. Image is a free digi from Inger Harding and the frame is a  freebie from SansDesign both have been coloured with promarkers. Card is finished with a Martha Stewart punched strip, a Cheery Lynn doiley, snow flake embossing folder, ribbon and some pearls.

Do pop over to CCWS to see what the other Design Team members have in store for you, do hope you can join us. Our sponsor this time is Stempelstudio.

Challenges entered:
Jingle Belles - 3 or more layers
Bling it on - embossing
A Spoonful of Sugar - ribbons and bows
Ribbon Carousel - colour it
ABC Christmas - m is for monochromatic
I love Promarkers - anything goes
