The Paper Shelter - Christmas Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Crafters, wow the Blog Hop really went down well and Im delighted to say the winner of my free image is:-

Well done Julie to claim your prize you will need to visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to discover how to contact The Paper Shelter to receive it.
And now we have a very popular theme for this Christmas Challenge and that is "Anything Goes" and because its so close to Christmas we have decided that we shall be taking a break for 3 weeks and that we wont be commenting on the entries, as you probably know its a very popular theme and I know the Design Teams want to spend the holiday period with their families so I hope you will forgive us this time for not doing so.
Anyway this Christmas Challenge as always we are being sponsored by Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

As always this comes with the usual rule that you must have used one of their products on your card and this could be a image, paper or printable, but even if you dont the will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cant loose can you, you will find all their gorgeous images here at The Paper Shelter website and they have lots of discounts at the moment on their Christmas images.
And now for my Card:-

For my card I have used this very appropriate image and its called "The Turkey is Ready" and you will find it here, I have also used the backing paper that comes with the image. I have printed the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I have used a oval die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount out of beige card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with the backing paper from the image, then I have placed my mounted image towards the left and I then created a floral spray with pine cones, die cut fern leaves and holly berries and a red ribbon in the middle. The sentiment is one of a die cut that I have in my stash.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Teams have created for your inspiration and then I hope you will want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge, and I do hope that you will come back on January 15th when my A Team will be back to show you our first Challenge in the New Year, though the B Team will be back on January 8th with their first Challenge. And now I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a even better New Year from all my A Team and The Paper Shelter.

Beautiful card. I love your coloring of this image and how you diecut her outside the oval. The embellishments are fabulous...real pinecones! So pretty in the red and cream and then to put in that touch of turquoise/teal...just perfect to set off this image and embellishments (with their perfect tied bow). Outstanding card! Hugs, Gail

Beautiful card. Thank you for playing along with the High Hopes challenge. Unfortunately you didn't use a High Hopes stamp so it does not qualify for the challenge.
