Christmas Challenge (with sketches) #4

Another fortnight past so it's time for a new sketch over at CCWS. This time it was Renata's turn to design the sketch and our sponsor is Whiff of Joy. Please pop over to CCWS to view the sketch yourself. Here is my card:

I've used a free digi from Inger Harding and coloured her with promarkers. Backing papers are all from my stash. Card is finished with some poinsettias (bought years ago in a sale), a raffia bow (recycled from a bouquet), holly punchouts, sentiment (from a very old QVC kit), pearls and some raffia lace  (bought for me by a forum friend several years ago).
Do visit the rest of the Design Team to see their take on the sketch and remember you'll be thanking us come December when all your cards are made on time :)
