Christmas in Traditional Colours at Crafty Ribbons

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?
Please stop by the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog and see if you were one of our handpicked top 3 or our Random Winner!
So, onto our new challenge.
We are sponsored for this challenge by:
Fabulous Flowers
Here is a little bit about them:
MuberryCraftsUK online shop is a Home-Based business run by Bev .This time the challenge is:

At the moment we are focussing on providing miniature flowers made from genuine mulberry paper for crafts use - although we have a small selection of non -paper crafts too. Why mulberry paper? Because they are robust, realistic look and last longer than ordinary paper and it provides a sustainable income for people in the cottage industry. In due course we will be introducing more of other craft materials which is not related to mulberry paper.

Christmas in Traditional Colours
So here is my project for this challenge:
I have used one of the fabulous Bugaboo images and this one is called Fancy Sunbonnet Winter.
These images are a dream to colour and I have used my Prismacolour Pencils to colour this one.  I have added white glamour dust to the brim of her had and the cuffs on her sleeves (although it doesn't really show up very well on these pics!)
I have added a piece of DP which was in a freebie pack from one of the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.  The three little poinsettias are from my stash and I have had them for simply ages!!

I also added a gem branch too, although again it doesn't show up well on here.  That lush ribbon at the top and the bottom is, of course, from Crafty Ribbons and you can find this particular range here.
Can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge, have fun.
