Digi Haven DT Card - December Anything Goes

It's the first of the month (can you believe it!) so it's time for our monthly "Anything Goes" challenge at Digi Haven. To play along, all you have to do is use a free digi and add a link to it, we have lots of links to fabulous freebies on the Digi Haven blog.  I've used a Beccy's Place image again, I really love her artwork, you'll find my free digi here.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and coupled it with kraft, leather look paper and some Papermania Portobello Road paper.  The sentiment is stamped with a Papermania Hampstead collection stamp and the buckle was made with a Spellbinders die, which I threaded with ribbon and added three glazed brads.  The buttons are all from my massive bag of Boofle buttons which I'm slowly but surely wading my way through.  Some Card Candi and tiny pearls finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Passion for Promarkers - #177 - distressing
Fab 'n' Funky - #149 - use 3 of something, I used 3 brads and 3 Card Candies
House of Gilli - #46 - die cuts
Here Come The Boys - #41 - birthdays
Emergency Crafters - anything goes
Sugar Creek Hollow - #40 - distressing

Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole
lot and don't manage to get anything done.
