Another christmas one....

Bought a stamp set from Papermania a little while ago and decided it was about time I used it.  I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout of my card.
The image has been stamped and coloured with promarkers.  I have also added glitter highlights.  I decided that I wanted to stick to fairly traditional christmas colours (if there is such a thing these days), hence the variations of green and red.  Finished it off with some peel off stars, some ribbon and a bow.
I also distressed the edges of the papers used and added a slight touch of distress ink to the edges of the image.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - use sketch
Polka Doodles 41 - ribbons and bows

Thanks for looking and please feel free to comment.  I love reading all your comments
