A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Anything Christmas

We have a new challenge for you today at A Gem of a Challenge, which will be running for the whole of December, with the nice and easy theme of "Anything Christmas".  I've used the fabulous and fun, Christmas Cocktail Emma, digi from Pink Gem, which I've coloured with Promarkers, then I added some silver glitter to her boa to giver her a long string of glitzy tinsel.
 The papers are Trimcraft, Back to Basics, Traditional, which I picked up at the SECC for the bargain price of £1, not bad of an 8x8 pack of this year's papers eh?!  The sentiment stamp is from a Fizzy Moon set, I thought it went rather well with this image as she does seem to be having a rather fantastic time!
To embellish, I've added some coloured pearls, holly cut with Spellbinders dies, with red dew drops for berries, and flourishes cut with a Sizzix die, which cuts one massive flourish, which is perfect for cutting up into smaller pieces, as I've done here.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Pattie's Creations - #105 - Christmas Card
CRAFT - #288 - Christmas
Delightful Challenges - Twinkle, Twinkle (Add Something Sparkly)
Crafting for all Seasons - #91 - 'Tis the Season
