Ugly Christmas Sweater - Saturated Canary - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning. Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where Lynsey has chosen the theme of 'Festive Food'.  I have to admit to being a little stuck on what image to use for this challenge, but Candy Canes came to the rescue :)
So for my card today I have used an older one from the lovely Krista at Saturated Canary, 'Ugly Christmas Sweater'.  This one really makes me smile as I have a cream one that looks just like this.

Another almost CAS one. She is fussy cut and mounted onto a ? Crafter' s companion/Hunkydory background. Layered onto cordinations and silver mirror card.  The snowflakes are part of a Memory Box die, and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is from Crafts Too.

I added glossy accents to her glasses. She is coloured with Triamarkers, Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

The inside again with the pre coloured background.

We are being sponsored this week by Crafter's Companion who are offering a £10 voucher to spend in store.

I hope you will take the time to check out the fabulous cards my teamies have made for your inspiration this week here.  It will be Christmas before you know it, so why not join in with our challenge and get started on some early cards.

Thanks for taking the time to look 

I am entering the following challenges :-
