I Love Promarkers DT Card - Male Christmas Card

It's that time of the week again when we start a new challenge at I Love Promarkers, this time our theme is "Male Christmas Cards", and we're sponsored by Kenny K, who are offering a choice of three digis to our randomly chosen winner.
The DT were all, very generously, given sponsor images to play with for this challenge, I chose this super cute Elf Boy, and coloured him up with my Promarkers, in rather nontraditional colours, for a baby's first Christmas card.
 The papers I've used are Lili of the Valley, Frosty Christmas, to which I've added some kraft for matting, and some kraft coloured ribbon.
I used a Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles die to cut the lacy edged circle, a Joy die for the bunting, and a Quick Kutz alphabet die set for the lettering on the flags, to personalise the card.  The panel in the centre was embossed with an Embossalicious folder (an SECC bargain!) and gently inked with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
To finish, I've added a computer generated sentiment and some pale blue gems in the corner.

 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Dream Valley - #94 - Christmas 
The Crazy Challenge - #184 - Your Favourite Technique - Colouring with Promarkers
