A CAROL SINGER AT MY WINDOW

The Outlawz Creative Freebie challenge has two fabulous images that I got to create a card with, and this is one of them:

The image was coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen, and i fussy cut her out and mounted her on a black CS background under a die cut.

As embellishments I sewed on some star sequins using tiny seed beads.  For the remainder of the card, the following were used:
white CS card blank
turquoise CS card mat
Christmas theme DP
silver flower embellishments with red pearl centres
flat pearls - red
turquoise layered flowers

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

ABC CHALLENGES, X for X MARKS THE SPOT (there is an x or two in the window scrolls)
