A Layered Christmas

I can't believe how quickly this month is rolling by. Everything seems to be geared up for just the one day but we also have five family birthdays this month so there is extra crafting and shopping to do. I hope you are all up to date with your preparations. I'm still chasing my tail trying to get everything ready in time, but, just to prove that I have been crafting I have a card to show today.
This is a card I made for a crafty American friend. She has received it now so I can show it.

I cut panels of plain card in decreasing sizes and layered them up. I tattered the edges with scissors and spread them out to make a card that fits in an 8"x 8" envelope. The papers are from Heartfelt Creations and Papermania

I added hessian ribbon, lace and green wired ribbon across the front of the card. This adorable little girl is IMG392  from Sherri Baldy. I coloured her with my Copics and cut round her before mounting on foam pads.

I used Marianne dies for the poinsettias and ferns and a Memory Box die for the bells. I tied more of the wired ribbon in a bow and finished the card with some gold gems. I'm pleased to say that the card was well received.
I'd better get back to my preparations now but I'll be back to show more of my recent crafting soon.
I've entered this card in the following challenges:
