Another Quirky Bug Xmas Card

I've just finished this card as one of my reminders for my challenge, which is going on over on Quirky Craft Challenge blog as I type! It's Christmas in August with a twist as you have to include a few things from a cheesy wheel. So here's my third card using a bugaboo image. Non traditional Colours, Triangles,  and Christmas Charm.
I've used Knobby Knees Christmas sack printed him out twice, coloured with promarkers, added a bit of white with a gel-pen, used a die cut to cut out one of the images, losing a tiny bit of the sack, fixed it to a silver matt card and then I covered that one with another image, but cut off all the skinny and the stick, hair, legs, arms and neck!
 I know there's this super clever way of die cutting and leaving a bit that  goes outside the die-cut, and snipping round it, but I find that quite hard to do as I don't have the extra plates/mats for my Big-Shot, and it's a bit hit and miss if I can cut it out first time, so it's easier (I think ) to just cut out another image and stick it over the top! 
 So the top image is also without the hat pom-pom, hair, one of his feet, a tiny bit of hand and the round bit of the furthest away 'sleeve'. I would've cut off the bits of ribbon too, but had coloured them in different colours, so didn't! I've also added, some 'stitching' using a fine purple pen, silver corner peel-offs and a snowflake Christmas charm.
The ribbon 'rosette' embellishment, with gems and pearls already added, I've had for years, it's part of a pack of six. It sticks out quite a bit, so will need extra care when posting. 
 The snowflake ribbon I found in a local store, I also added eye-lash wool.  I've placed the topper so it looks as though there's more triangles. The inside I've left blank but with a place to write something, using the same die-cut and also missed out using a sentiment. All the papers are by Pink Petticoat, in Blue Berry or Blue Bell. That's it! I'll add this to yesterdays reminder post over on Quirky Crafts! Thank you for stopping by!
