Christmas store front

Still playing with these 'store front' cards.  Beyond the Fringe has made even more images
to put into the store front card that I scrap lifted from them.  (see their site or my tutorial for how-to).
They have added Christmas ornaments and a toy shop window as freebies on their site.

Today I played with the Christmas ornaments and made my own Christmas Shoppe!

Image:  Beyond the Fringe
Coloring:  Copics (not so easy on these little tiny items!)
Punches:  SU Word window, EK Success border punch
Bling, paper, ribbon:  more stuff gone from the scrap stash!

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe Crafts:  Christmas with pearls
Forever Friends Challenges:  Christmas - must include an animal (penguin ornament)
