Christmas Club card

Time to post my Christmas card for the Christmas card club. This time we followed a sketch by the lovely Clare and this is my take on the sketch.
I used PB image (my bargain of the week £2), papers are from DCWV, green and red papers from stash. Sentiment is a border strip from QVC. I coloured the image with promarkers and added some sparkle. I finished the card with faux stitching. 
If you fancy joining the club please just email one of the girls or me. The list is on the left of my sidebar. You can join at any time, its just a big of fun to help us prepare for Christmas 2011.
We justed added the DUTCHESS to our list:)
The next fortnight it is my turn to come up with the challenge and I have made this sketch for us to follow.
I have kept it really simple so we are not too tied to embellishments or where to put sentiments etc.
Fancy joining us?
