I Love Promarkers DT Card - Girls, Girls, Girls

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, and I think this week's theme of "Girls, Girls Girls" will be very popular, all we want to see is a girl or girls in the image, easy peasy.  We're sponsored this time by Dies to Die for.
I decided to make a Christmas card, in an attempt to pad out the lean pile I've already made, using a cute Lili of the Valley stamp, stamped on Neenah Desert Sand card, and coloured, of course, with Promarkers, and highlighted with a touch of white pencil for the brightest highlights on the white robes.  I just had to add some glitter to their tinsel halos, I used a Diamond Sparkles glitter in Golden Sand, it's a lovely soft, warm, vintage gold.  I cut the topper out with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die.
 The backing paper is Lili of the Valley, Krafty Christmas, and the star patterned piece is a piece of kraft card that I embossed with a Craft Concepts star folder, then inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
To embellish, I added some cream crochet lace, some cream satin ribbon and a matching bow and some pearls.  You might recognise the layout, it's the same as Monday's baby card!
