Christmas Card Club

I'm running late again with my Christmas Card Club creation. This time it was Lizzie's turn to test our creativity and she choose a sketch:

Using an image from LOTV coloured with promarkers, highlighted with stickles and edged with DI. All card and backing papers were from my bit box (checked paper is from Cuddly Buddly). Card is finished with polka dot ribbon and punched snowflakes with added stickles.

Challenges entered:
Cuddly Buddly - best friends
Totally Papercrafts - layer upon layer
CHNC - make a scene
Secret Crafter - wrap up warm
Totally Gorjuss - pastel Christmas
Christmas Card Challenges - 2DP, ribbon, bird (no bird but 2 outta 3 ain't bad lol)
Fab's big Christmas - shiny and/or snowflakes
Little Claire's - Christmas
Jules Snippets Challenge

Just for fun Jules has set a little extra challenge of looking at your most viewed post this is what I found:
I'm quite surprised at the result especially as the first one has twice as many comments as the second.
