A Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone, today's card is another one for the Xmas box and this time I've used the traditional Christmas colours of red, green and gold. I have to admit to really liking the richness of this colour palette and I think I may have to use this colour combo again.
This is another 8" x 8" 'biggy' as it's designated for my best friend and her husband.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch # 179
ABC Christmas Challenge - V for Vintage
Crimbo Crackers - Challenge #1 Anything Goes

Card Details:
* Image - Digital Pencil Too 'Holly Fairy'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Hot Off The Press
* Punch - MS 'Doily Lace'
* Everything else from my stash

I've used Mo's Holly Fairy again, this is probably my all time favourite image for Christmas cards, I bought her a couple of years ago and use her on some of my cards every year. I just have to try to make sure I don't send her to the same people every year ha ha!
The beautiful gold sparkly ribbon was part of a gift from my dear friend Barb last year. She had bought lots of stunning christmas ribbons and sent me a selection as she knows we don't have access to the same gorgeousness here in the UK.
