I Love Promarkers DT Card - Circles

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Circles", and we're sponsored by Yours and Mine Papercraft.
I've used lots of lovely new stash, bought at the SECC last weekend, to make my DT card, another one to add to my now rather thick Christmas pile.
 The fun and quirky image and sentiment are from a House of Zandra stamp set, there's a fabby Christmas boot in the set too that I'm itching to ink up soon.  I've used my faithful Promarkers for colouring, of course, then I die cut the topper with a Grand Spellbinders Fancy Circle die and inked the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink.
For the next circular layer, I used an Xcut mistletoe embossing folder that I picked up for £1 at the show, die cut it into a circle, then inked it with Twisted Citron Distress Ink and added pearls where the berries are.
The paper is from a Lili of the Valley pad called 'Twas the Night, also a new purchase, I do love LOTV papers and like to stock up at the SECC.
Next it was time to break out the new dies!  I used a Heartfelt Creations stamp set and coordinating die set, called Sparkling Poinsettia, to create the flowers from red pearl card, using my Susan's Garden flower shaping kit to shape the blooms.  The holly was cut with Sue Wilson dies, with some Nuvo Crystal Drops for the berries.  To finish, I added some green and gold Card Candi.
