A Blue Christmas

Here is a card I've made with a Delicious Doodles image called "Katarina" - the lady is gorgeous but that snow leopard is magnificent.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers/Flexmarkers, added some Stickles and put in some clouds with a blue Pan Pastel.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Light and Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dods.  I have made some die-cut flowers with the same papers for a prefect match.  The card has been finished off with some embossing, lace, gem stars, ribbon bow, pearl and Stamp Addicts sentiment stamp.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girl - Ho, ho ,ho
