Christmas challenges have begun!

It's hard to believe, but Christmas is right around the corner!  Fall is so short, especially here in Arizona, and the holiday decorations and goodies start showing up about now.

For the Digital Delights challenge, Glitter It Up!, they provided the cutest Nutcracker for the project!  I had so much fun coloring him with my Copics and glitzing him up.
"Waiting For Christmas Morning"

The popped up images really make it more 3-Dimensional.

I used the "Glitzmas" paper, stickers,  and glittered cardstock from SEI, along with stock Christmas bead trim and gold ribbon purchased at Michaels several years ago. The shapes are Nestabilities "Labels Four".  It's hard to see in the picture, but I have Stickles glitter on his buttons, hat and plume, along with the ornaments!
I am still scrapping out of boxes, but thank goodness my Christmas stuff was all together!

This card also qualified for the challenges over at:
 Some Odd Girl Early Bird Challenge, where they were requesting layouts with "stand-up" or popped up embellies/images. Love their images, but this I just finished today and it just fits!
A Crafty Little Place has a great Red, White and Green Challenge.
The Crafty Purple Frog!  I just love thename of that blog and their images are breathtaking! Would love to win some!  The challenge there was to "add some sparkle"!
Whoopsie Daisy has a challenge that requires only that it be a "Christmas" theme!
