I Love Promarkers DT Card

We have a new challenge starting today over at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is, "Christmas is Coming".  I'm sure the nine weeks left 'til the most magical day of the year will fly by, so, if you haven't started your cards yet, why not dig out your Promarkers and play along.  We are sponsored this time by Marianne, who are offering a fabulous prize to the challenge winner.
In keeping with our sponsor, I used these lush Marianne papers and a Marianne poinsettia die.  I bought the papers last year but still have plenty left as I hardly wanted to cut into them because they're so gorgeous, they even smell great!  The other dies I used are from the Spellbinders Fall Foliage set, my latest craft crush, I'm sure my Calibur is sick of the sight of them!
The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp, another of last year's purchases and this is only the second time she's seen ink.  Why do I keep buying stamps?!  After colouring, I went round the edges of the topper, whilst still in the die, with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, and highlighted the falling snow with Star Dust Stickles.
I recently came across  the burgundy angel hair stuff in my stash, I've got no recollection of buying it but it's lovely, somewhere between fabric and mulberry paper.  I had a bit of a job tearing it but I'm glad I persevered.
The border punch I used is Martha Stewart, such a handy one for Christmas projects, and I finished my card off with, rather unsurprisingly, some ribbon and a bow.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Anything Goes - #78 - make your own embellishments
Stamp and Create - winter wonderland
Oozak - die cuts
