DT Post for OSAAT #179 'Make one for Christmas'

Welcome to this weeks challenge at OSAAT and our theme this week is 
'Make one for Christmas'

I have been in a major panic trying to get this card finished as I have had my sons 4th Birthday to organise and had the silly idea of crocheting them all a bottle bag for their party bags instead of something that would break the minute they got it home and I have also had a 4 day craft fair this week that finished last night, so I made my card in half an hour last night!  Hope you don't judge it too harshly ;)

here is a photo of the bottle holders( my son loved dispicable me 2 so minions it is!)

and onto my card for this weeks challenge using the gorgeous 'Spari fairy' image from BBKakes

Collage of images

using freebie papers from a magazine and a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, with green paper for matting and layering

A 'Happy Christmas' sentiment brad bought from the Range about 2 years ago.  not sure who made them!
