A Gem of a Challenge Dt Card - One for the Girls

It's time for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge, this fortnight our theme is "One for the Girls".
I decided to make a Christmas card for my DT sample, using Christmas Cocktail Emma, which I coloured with my Promarkers, then added Star Dust Stickles to the dress and shoes and Stampendous glitter to her stole, this card is so much more sparkly in reality than my camera could capture.
 Because I printed the image nice and large, there wasn't a massive amount of space for lots of layers and embellishments, so I kept my card fairly simple, adding an embossed backing, done with an Embossalicious folder, matted with silver card. to embellish, I added some silver sparkly ribbon with a matching double bow, a Craftwork Cards sentiment (it says Merry and Bright), a star flourish cut with a Joanna Sheen die from holographic card, some holographic Card Candi, and some crystal gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Simply Create Too - #92 - Anything Goes
Sister Act - #119 - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Shiny, Blingy, Happy Things
Inspiration Destination - #46 - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - #214 - Lace and/or Ribbon
Sparkles Christmas - #55 - No Designer Paper
