Have a Cracker of a Christmas!

Hi everyone, my card today is for the wonderful Bah! Humbug! challenge, whose theme this week is Christmas Crackers.
Guess what? I didn't have anything that related to crackers, so I had to make my own tiny one out of some 'metallic look' paper and tie the ends with dental floss. How's that for ingenuity lolol!

I fully intended to try to join in every one of these challenges this year, but I've already managed to miss Challenge 2 and I've just rushed to complete this one for Challenge 3 before I miss that one as well.
I usually try to get my entry to cover a few of the other christmas challenges too, but they all seemed to be colour challenges this week and unfortunately NOT the colours I chose to use for this.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Monique'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Dovecraft 'Winter Wonderland'
* Punch - MS PATP 'Eyelet Lace'
* Everything else from my stash

Time just seems to be getting away from me at the moment, I really must try to get more done and not just sit at the PC blog-hopping all day!

Oh well done Chrissy you're the first one to use a handmade cracker embellishment and doesn't it look stunning. Very clever of you - must remember that one for future reference.
I too try to link the challenges but sometimes it just doesn't work out.
Thanks for joining us again.
