Hello to all in Blogland.  I hope this finds you well.  My card  for Charisma Cardz Challenge features the fabulous Merry Christmas Bea from Teddy Bo & Co and she is lovely.

List of Materials used to make this card:

This card is made from a sheet of 12 x 12 Core'dinations paper and is folded at 3" x 9" Horizontally and 6" Vertically.  2 x 3" panels have been cut from the sheet and the centre panel has been folded at 1", 2", 3" and cut at 4".  
A decorated sheet of Christmas paper from my stash.
Lots of lovely die cuts from silver mirror card - trees and swirls and glitter card snowflakes. Snowflakes are a Marianne Die, Flowering Christmas Tree and Frosty Border are Memory Box Dies.   Pearls have been used to decorate the snowflakes
The lovely Miss Bea is coloured using a mixture of Flexmarker and Promarker Pens. 
I have used some Anita's Glitter snow and decorated with extra glitter detail.   

A closer view of this lovely image and details.

This is an image of the front of the card featuring die cut foiled poinsettias with glitter detail.  Foiled hearts, swirls and lovely glitter ribbon.  There is a mini pocket on the front of each side of this gatefold card and a little double label is tucked inside.  The paper used for the pockets is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs.  Thank you Donna.
