My Favourite Things - Christmas in July Card

Hi Guys! I know, Christmas in July!!!?! Whose silly idea was that, hehe. Over at The Stamp Spot blog this month, the challenge is all things Christmas!
Here is my first contribution -
I started by stamping up this chicky in a martini glass, which is from My Favourite Things, I coloured her using my Spectrum Noir markers, added some glitter stickles to her dress, and shoes, for a bit of a festive look, then set her aside, unsure how to continue! 
The next day, a wave of inspiration hit, I went through my patterned papers. The goldy coloured paper on the background is American Crafts - Amy Tangerine as is the ledger paper the sentiment is stamped onto, and the green spotty paper is from Echo Park, which is the Dots & Stripes Collection. I then found some twill ribbon and tied a bow. I coloured up three rhinestones, using my Spectrum Noirs, to match the gold colour scheme, and finished off this card with some doodling, which I did with a new favourite journaling pen, the Project Life journaling pen
Here is the close up-
