Christmas Star - LOTV

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new follower, your comments really are greatly appreciated.
I get worse. Not only do I miss deadlines for entering challenges, but discovered this week that I say I have entered challenges and then find that I forgot to go back and enter after publishing my post............. duhhhhhhh... this old age thing must be really getting to me ;-)

I think I must have caught the Christmas bug as I couldn't resist inking up this cutie.

I wish I could get the camera to capture the sparkle of the glitter as I used lots of Glamour dust and  Ice crystals. She is one of the new releases from LOTV as is the backing paper and the sentiment. I cut her with a SB deckled rectangle and matted up with Bazzill basics. The corners are SB Holly Accents. Ribbon , peals and charm from my stash.

She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils.

The inside reflects the front. If anyone is looking for Christmasy ribbon I bought this (and red and green) from Dunelm Mills, 12 m  rolls for under £2.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Gorgeous card Eileen, as usual, really love those Holly corners, think a shopping trip is in great colouring and image. I think we must both be going through the same age thing , my memory is mush at the moment, unless its the heat. he he

I loe your choice of colour too, I have just bought a massive pile of blue and white dotted swiss cardstock for my christmas cards, it's MY traditional colour scheme!
