Sugar Nellie - Santa With Tree!

Hi Everyone! Hope you are all well and thank you for visiting my blog!
Still not over my trapped nerve, had to go back to the docs on Friday who gave me 3 different tablets to take, one being Diazepam, again! So just soldiering on!!! Have to be honest it's not as bad (as not laid flat out, LOL!) but still got the pain in my head and in my shoulder and arm!
Well here is my new card.  I have made it for my friend Franki who has her own craft shop and it is for a demo card in her shop.  She let me have this gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp of whose stamps I have never used, isn't it brill!!
To make this I used 8x8 scalloped card and matted and layered silver mirri and used backing paper from Humphrey's Corner Jingle Bells CD (twin pack) Next added some red crispy ribbon from Franki's shop!
I then embossed a sheet of Core'dinations using a Crafts Too Snowflake folder. Next I stamped my image onto an X-Cut Nestie die and coloured my image using Spectrum Noir pens and added some glitter.  To finish off I used Memory Box Frosty Border Die and a Marianne Creatables Snowflake and added from my Paintbox Poppets Yuletide Stamps a fantastic circled date and encapsulated this into a Round Epiphany - isn't it fab, coloured it too with my Speccies to match. Oh then a few Card Candi!!!
Colours Used:
Santa - DR1, 5, 7
Tree & Holly - JG1, 2, 4 
Face - FS2, 3, TN2, FS6 & Blender
Beard - IG1, 2, 3 & Blender
Boots - IG6, 8, 9, 10 & Blender
