First Tunnel card!!

Mum & I recently bought the Papermania Tunnel Card template, and here's my first attempt using it!!

I've used a Miss Anya image coloured with Whispers (in the Promarker-era!!), and have glittered the white fur trims with Glamour dust!
The card is actually Cooredinations, and so I've distressed the edges with scissors, then used silver pearlescent glue & more glamour dust to highlight the edges (and hide my poor cutting skills)!! There is acetate across the "windows" with little stickers stuck on, and at the back I've used a Christmas tree from a paper pack, and embellished with gems. I love the sparkle (as I'm sure you've realised on this card) and get so excited about Christmas!!

Challenges I'm entering:
Dutch Dare #83 - Anything Goes
Craft Your Days Away #1 - Favourite Things
Anyone For Anya #27 - Christmas in August
