This Week's Challenge at CES Challenges - Anything But A Christmas Card

Here's my card for this week's challenge at CES Challenges - and if you've had enough of the Christmas making then this is the challenge for you!!  Anything but a Christmas Card as chosen by my fab teamie, Sheena.  I loved looking at all the beautiful cards last week - I don't know how the winners could be chosen!!  Looking forward to seeing more gorgeous cards  through the next week. 

Our sponsor this week is The Stamp Fairy and you could win three digi images of your choice - Big Smiles!!!

Onto my card and I've used this fab Whiff of Joy image from the City Girl Range.  I've used loads of lovely goodies  that are available from Crafty Emma's Online Store and these include GCD Paris Night Papers, Webster's Hollywood Pages, the ribbon, the black buckle sliders, pearls and the pins that you can just see peeking out of the flower.  And of course, Emma sells the full range of Promarkers ( used here) and Aquamarkers.
I  love a good sketch and this one is no exception - from Sketch and Stash challenge  so I'm entering it into their challenge this week.
Sorry I'm so late in post - manic here!!  Got all my family here tomorrow and just been to buy our tree which is a bit of a monster!!  Making trifle and mince pies as we speak, and just got to make a cheese dip and clear up everywhere!!!  I hope I can relax a bit more after tomorrow!!  ( Maybe not, just thinking about what's to be done next week!)
