Use Ribbon or Twine - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 14th of September, 2018

Well I thought I was going really well this week, but work and the kids have been all consuming and I have been tired, so I am a little late for my Winter Wonderland card this fortnight.
This fortnight, we are hosted by Janice, who has chosen the theme:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

So here is my card:

We are sponsored this fortnight by Dr. Digi's House of Stamps!


Welcome to the brilliantly bizarre brain of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. Here you will find monsters, aliens, odd balls and Dundertons as well as many more.

The prize on offer for the challenge winner is 2 digis of the winner's choice.

So back to my card:
I digitally printed Selfie Santa from Doctor Digi on to X-Press It blending card, which I then had my Silhouette Cameo cut out. I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
  • hair and beard - C0, C1, colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella
  • shirt - B95, B97, B99
  • braces - G05, G07, black Wink of Stella, gold Wink of Stella
  • pants - R32, R35, R37, black Wink of Stella
  • boots - C5, C7, C9, E13, E18
  • hat - C5, C7, C9, R32, R35, R37
  • holly - YG63, YG67, R35, R37, clear Wink of Stella
  • nose - YR04, YR09
  • scarf - G02, G05, G07
  • stick arms - E13, E18, G05
  • snowman - C0, C1, C2, colourless blender, black Wink of Stella
  • phone - B0000, purple Wink of Stella
  • snow - C0, C1, C2, BV0000, colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella
  • background - B00, B02
I extended the snow at the base of the image with a black Copic multiliner.
I have attached my coloured image on to a card from Envelope Solutions.
I have then attached two pieces of ribbon from American Crafts Father Christmas with double-sided tape.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
