I Love Promarkers DT Card - At Least 3 Layers

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "At Least Three Layers", and we're sponsored by Clearly Besotted Dies and Stamps.
I decided to make another Christmas card for my DT sample, using a Papermania Country Companions stamp that I bought ages ago in a sale but hadn't got round to inking up.  I used Rich Cocoa Memento to stamp the image, rather than black, for a softer look, then coloured with Promarkers, I have to admit that I really enjoyed colouring this one, with all it's different textures, even although the image is quite small.
 The pretty papers are Papermania, Lucy Cromwell Home for Christmas, a lovely pack from a couple of years ago which have a very nice linen texture, I thought that the poinsettia patterned one went particularly well with this image.  I just added in some what and green cardstock for matting and stamped a sentiment with a Papermania stamp, in brown ink to match the image.
To embellish, I added some layered ribbon, a matching button topped bow, some poinsettias made with Nellie Snellen punches, pine sprigs and holly leaves made with Spellbinders dies, and some gold gems.
