Final GDT card for Christmas Card Challenges

Morning Lovelies - hope you're all okay! We're good and enjoying a lazy weekend - my parent help day was cancelled yesterday - and we went to the playbarn with the children instead - I managed to get two DT cards made which is good. Today we'll be off to the swimming pool with the girls - I'm hoping to get a few lengths in! We'll have to wait and see if that happens.

Today sees my last post for Christmas Card Challenges where I've thoroughly enjoyed being a GDT for the month of January. Its great to have made a start on my Christmas cards already! The challenge this time is red, white and brown and you can see the full details here.

My card features an image from Delicious Doodles - I think she's called Angelina - but don't quote me on that! I've coloured her with promarkers and added glitter to the wings and large snowflake and cut her out using a spellbinders grand die. The card itself and its mat was cut using a Go Kreate Die. I've added a brown ribbon and brown twine with a snowflake charm - the charm was from the Ribbon girls and the poinsettias are WOC. The sentiment is from LOTV grunge Christmas sentiments.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
