Hi all, I am back with a Christmas card today and to remind you of the 
as long as it is Christmas related 
it is a monthly challenge sponsored by
here is my card using an Elisabeth Bell Digi Image 
I have followed the sketch at cheerful sketches, the image has been coloured with Copics, the papers are Bearly Mine,  all have been mounted onto silver mirror card, I punched the scalloped circle and placed some of the paper  I also added some small white punched snowflakes, I added some ribbon to the panel on the left and a bow on the top to make it look like a Christmas present I also added a rose, die cut branches and holly, I added lots of holographic silver shred glitter to the Christmas tree and silver glitter to the little girls pajamas and present, the sentiment is computer generated and merged with the image using my MCS programme, finally I added some silver Viva Decor pearls around the edge of the card.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I want to thank you for your lovely comments and well wishes I am feeling better but still way behind on my commenting, I did not think I would get this card done in time it has taken several days but I was quite pleased with the finished product, I hope you like it as well.
I hope that you will bear with me while I catch up with you all I seem to asking you to do that a lot these days hopefully things will sort themselves out soon so thank you for your kindness and loyalty it means so much to me.
Have a great weekend see you soon.
