BESTIE BLUE CHRISTMAS

Hi all, today I have a Christmas card to share with you and to enter into a few challenges.
I have used a Sherri Baldy Bestie image, Christmas Besties A42, I bought this one quite awhile ago but never used her, I have finally coloured her with Graph It Markers then cut her out so I could adhere her with silicone glue for a 3d effect.
I used the smaller of my Grande Spellbinders circles then cut another circle for the inner with my EK Success circle cutter, I embossed both the base card and the inner circle with a Christmas 8 x 8 embossing folder, I have used an 8 x 8 scalloped card for the base, I have highlighted around the white card with TH Peacock Feathers Distress ink, I used Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card in both the blue and white, I have actually used quite a few dies on this card, snowflakes, branches, Poinsettia, flower head, Christmas Tree and greeting. 
I have added some white lace but coloured it with the same Peacock Feathers distress ink I then added a little green bow and bell, some Pinflair Ice Diamond Frosting and some flower pearls.
A Closer look at the image 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I actually got my mum, who will be 95 this year, to do some of my die cutting I like to keep her busy, lol.  I really hope that you have enjoyed your visit and that you like my card I will be seeing you all soon.

Adorable image, so beautifully colored as well. Love all the pretty die cuts that you've added to make this such a frosty and pretty card. Love the way you have Miss placed in front of the MB tree, and that is wonderful texture coloring on the fur she is wearing too. TFS & Hugs. Also many thanks for the kind anniversary wishes.
