Digi Haven DT Project - Red and Green

It's challenge time again at Digi Haven, this time our theme is, "Red and Green" and we're sponsored by My Grafico, who kindly gave the DT some lovely, festive images to play with.  I chose this vintage style pine sprig with cones, which was quite dense and black, so I edited it in Word, changing it to a line drawing.
 The image was coloured with my usual Promarkers and highlighted with Glamour Dust for a frosty look.  I inked the edge of the die cut topper with some Fired Brick Distress Ink for a splash of colour.
I decided to make a gift box rather than a card for my DT project, it's another pizza style one made from one sheet of A4 card, I've made loads of these this year.  The papers are Kaisercraft, and were a magazine freebie, as was the cute bells charm, they go rather nicely with the hammered, metallic red card that I made the box from, although you can't see much of it in the photos.  I used a Martha Stewart punch and a narrow strip of green glitter paper to add some interest to the sides of the box, and I finished the top with a big red bow, red pearls and some clear gems.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Milk Coffee - Christmas
Craftitude - #55 - Christmas Sparkle
Stamping with the Dragon - Last Minute Christmas
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
