Wish Upon a Star - Sugar Nellie

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new follower Sharon, delighted to have you join me.  Between the headaches (the new glasses have made them worse) I have managed to put together a card.  I promised myself at the start of the year that I would make a Christmas card at least once a month, but of course I haven't managed it.

Today I have used a Sugar Nellie image that I bought ages ago 'Wish Upon a Star'. I think she is so sweet. 

She is cut with a SB grand circle and mounted on a stately circle. The ivy corners are from Marrianne. I can't remember who makes the poinsettia die . Sentiment from Whimsy and ribbon from my stash. Backing paper is from LOTV.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and a little Prisma pencil.  I added Glamour Dust, Ice Crystals,Viva Decor Pearl pen and Glossy accents (to the bells on her shoes and her button).

The inside does reflect the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Jingle Belles challenge - Tic Tac Toe (flowers, red or green, ribbon)

Thanks for taking the time to look
