Christmas at Fab'n'Funky Challenge #257

Hi everyone,
I hope this finds you well.
Sorry I haven't been around much the last few days.
 Hopefully things will settle down here and I'll get to visit you all and
see what you've been up to.

Now on to today's new challenge at
with a favourite of mine....a Christmas theme.
Hosted by the lovely Zora 

I've used a Chrishanthi ppinkydollsart image called "Christmas Party" available here.
The design is quite CAS and  the card fits in a 6x6 envelope
Red glitter paper was dry embossed using MB Merry Christmas Background die.  
 SB A2 Scalloped Borders Two die used to create the decorative edge
I braided some gold thread to make the string for the ornaments
and added a gold bead to each end
Coloured with Copics

We are fortunate to have a wonderful sponsor this week
offering a fabulous prize of  £15 to spend on their website
I hope you get a chance to play along.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by.
