Crimbo Crackers Challenge 17 - Decorations

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge!  The theme for this fortnight is:


If you want to know more about the challenge, pop over to Crimbo Crackers!  I'm sponsored by Bugaboo and have used one of their images in my sample:

I've used Ruby - Christmas Ornaments on my card and coloured her with Promarkers with some rather fab glittery lime green hair!  I've added glossy accents to her specs but you can't see (no pun intended!)  Papers are from Funky Hand - Twelve Crafters Crafting cd and I've had them in my stash for ages and are left over bits from previous projects.
I've added a faux stitch around the edge of the star papers and a dotted line around the edge of the X Cut die shape (which wasn't big enough for the image so Ruby's hair overhangs!)  Ribbon is from my stash and I've added a layered snowflake to hide the join.

Good luck with the challenge and I hope you'll join in - for more details pop over to the challenge blog!
