1 Card 3 Challenges and and Award Cermony (the Red Carpet is Out)

Morning ladies, I was ever so busy yesterday in my shed, something you will see later, but it took me all day and a couple of hours sleep to acheive, so think on.......I will be back later with my project to show you.....

This card I have made to fit 3 challenges, I followed the sketch given by Anne over at Winterwonderland there is the added option of pantomime but I had nothing to fit this, I used my gorgeous Winter Anya again, just love her, she is my favourite xmas stamp, maybe because I have lots of teenage girls around....Anyone for Anya has a Recipe 3,2,1 of (3 papers, not including base card, 2 Buttons and 1 Bow), I used some papers that I got free in one of the Craft Magazines, I can't remember which one, as I get so many, but loved the funky colours, and the Dotty Design ties in with Crafty Cats Ch7, which is asking us to "Go Dottie".  I used Promarkers to colour and used stickles to embellish, the ribbon, buttons and gems are from my stash.
