Its not all Red & Green

Good Afternoon all, I hope you are all keeping well, we have thick fog here and it is taking forever to lift, So I thought I would do a bit of blogging, this Christmas card is made using a beautiful image from Elizabeth Bell, I have coloured her with my Graph'It markers, spellbinder fancy oval die cut, Marianne creatables die cut ivy and die cut swirls, backing papers are from Dovecraft, sentiment tags from Polkadoodles, lace, feathers and flowers are all from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
