I'm entering this card into the challenges at

Divas By Design  texture, glitter and gloss

The Crafter's Cafe #86  to use an image with a hat

The ABC Challenge  V for vibrant

Addicted to Stamps #117  make your mark, colouring mediums

Shopping Our Stash #173  to have something sweet on the card

The stamp I've used is from Molly Bloom's Christmas Carnival and I coloured it with ProMarkers.  The papers are from various designers, the green Hohoho paper is from Nitwits, the green spotty paper is from Forever Friends.  The red one is from my old and ancient stash.  I cut George out and placed him on the card so it looked as though he was sitting on a windowsill using foam pads.  I stamped the sweets and, again, used my ProMarkers.  I covered them with a Versamark pad and used UTEE to make them really glossy as though they were wrapped in cellophane, cut them out and added them to the card on foam pads.  I added Glamour Dust to the white area and the spots on the paper after using a Quickie Glue Pen.  To finish it off I used a peel-off sentiment
