First Christmas Card for 2012

Hello all in Blogland.  I hope this finds you well.  My card for today is my first Christmas card for 2012 and features the image    And I want a...... from Mo Manning.  I was one of the lucky winners of  the recent Mo's  DP2 Challenge and chose this image with my prize voucher.

This is a fun and very traditional image and I have tried  to decorate the card in a traditional way.

List of Materials used for this card:
Wonderful image from Mo Manning coloured using Promarker Pens in traditional Christmas shades.
Papers and elements from a kit I have in my stash.  Trees decorated with glitter pom poms  which I have had in my stash still in the packet from last year.
Backing card and pearlised card for mounting.  Machine stitching to highlight front of card. 
Glitter Swirls, Die Cut Star Buttons and Twine.
This card has a folksy feel mostly due to the papers and decoration used.
Foiled sentiment toppers.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges: - Christmas in July - Use red and green. - Christmas in July - Waste not Wednesday - Wk 27

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and to read this post.  Sending warmest wishes to all.
