Christmas Cheers

It's time for Challenge #7 at A Die for a Sketch and it looks to me like JJ has had a little too much Christmas Cheer... which is exactly  what the name of this image is.  This month we are sponsored by Bugaboo and I chose to use JJ-Christmas Cheers.  I can only wish I looked that good sitting in a martini glass!
The image is coloured with Copics and the sentiment is computer generated.  The sparkly bits are my new fave embellishment and it is Eiskristall, which I purchased online from Doe@ding.  Fabulous customer service there and I had the order so quickly that I'm very impressed!
The three snowflakes down the side are Whimsy Stamps Layered Snowflake Dies  and the one behind the sentiment is Impression Obsession's Snowflake Dies set.  The patterned paper is Authentique and the red glitter paper was given to me by someone who completely understands my need to have everything related to paper/stamping!
Copic Colours:
Dress, bow:  R39, R29, R24, R22
Hair: E50, E31, E35, E37, E39
Berries:  R14, R17, R11, R29
Boots:  C10, C7, C5, C2
Skin:  E11, E00, E000, R20
Be sure to head on over to A Die for a Sketch to see what the rest of the gals have created.  Remember, there are only two rules for entering the Challenge - the first is you need to follow the sketch and secondly, use a minimum of one die cut on your project.  Easy peasy and here's your sketch:
Challenges:
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
No Matter Which - Christmas
One Crazy Stamper - Holiday Theme or Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Snowflakes
Die Cutting Divas - Christmas Spirit (maybe a little different interpretation of the word spirit?)

Hey my sweet friend up there in the Northlands!! Did you know that one of my bestest buddies is a DT for the same group?! How exciting this is -- I am just gonna have to compete in one of your challenges. Her Name is Kelly and she was just asked to join. Marilyn - she is one of the nicest ladies you will ever want to meet. Now time for your card - Dear child - If I could fit into this glass I gladly would.
