H for Holly ABC Christmas Challenge - DT card

Hi all this is one of not many cards I have made in the last few weeks 
But I loved painting this image as I just love Henry,
This fortnights it is Helens Challenge at ABC Christmas and her challenge is H for Holly Helen has done us a fabby sketch to follow

OK so here is my card! I have used Henry as I said I just love him! he's so cute!
teheheheee.... I have used distress inks for colour him and then I have used some new
colour core Vintage Collection, I hand drew and cut my holly, embossed using the holly cuttlebug folder, and used Swiss dots on the green vintage, and the text is PC generated.
I used my big bite to make the berries from the red vintage colour core. not sure how well you can see it but the marshmallows are done with a quickie glue pen and glamour dust and the cherries and holly on the cup I used my old favs my stardust pens.

Helen sketch is the Extra Challenge you do not have to follow it! but I am loving all the fantastic cards the DT have made to show off Helens Sketch so I can not wait to see yours cards too! we also have a Guest designer this fortnight and its the talented Delphine
