It feels like a Magical Monday

Hello and welcome to another Magical Monday.  Well you definitely liked the anything goes challenge from the past 2 weeks!  When I last checked we had an astounding 100 entries!!!
I hope you all come back again for this challenge, which is .....
Christmas in September

and because it's a Christmas themed challenge you are allowed to use the wonderful Father Christmas and Rudolf images that I've been seeing around recently.
Our sponsor for this challenge is 

I bet you're wondering why I have a photo of a coke box?  Well most of my kraft cardstock is made from the inside's of coke boxes, so I just thought I'd share that tip with you.
My wonderful image is from one of my favourite digi stamp companies Teddy Bo.  They have been coloured with copic's and I then added black glaze pen to Bo's nose to give him a bit of shine. I added glamour dust to Rudolf's hat and then for his nose I applied a thick layer of glossy accents and sprinkled some more glamour dust on that.
I edged the image with faux brown stitching.  The poinsettia is cut using my great friend Kath's marianne die.  I then added ice diamond chips by pinflair to give it a frosty look.  The backing paper is from a DCWV stack. I added some ribbon across the card in red.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Teddy Bo - flowers
The crafty pad - diamonds are a girls best friend
Sweet Stampin - flowers
Allsorts - alter/recycle
Crafty Emma's store - 4 different embellies - glitter, ribbon, glossy accents, flowers, ice diamonds
