Elisabeth Bell's World November/December Challenge

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you've had a good weekend so far!  It's finally gotten chilly here, but the sun is still shining, so I can't complain.  Before I head out for the day, I am popping by to share my GDT card for the new monthly challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World.  The theme for November/December is "a different folding".  I chose to make a center step card for my different folding project.  It is simple to do but looks very special, at least to me.  And the great thing is it still fits in the standard envelopes I use for my regular square cards.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are GKD Cranberry Tart and the patterned papers are from the K & Co. Elizabeth Brownd Visions of Christmas 12x12 pad.  The adorable image is Belles 'n Whistles The Christmas Door from Elisabeth Bell.  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Make it Colour Blending Card and colored with my Copics.  I added lots of Stickles to the ornaments on the tree and wreath, the poinsettia and her little petticoat.  Over the glitter on the ornaments, I added Glossy Accents to give them even more dimension.  I went over a few of the other details with Spica pens for a subtle shimmer.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It was part of Paulette's recent, and I must say fantastic, Winter Club.  Several adhesive pearls and a large silk bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:
