Freebie Time Again at Sparkle and Glitter

Morning all,
I hope the recent bad weather being experienced in a lot of areas is not finding you nor hampering your creative spirits. I hope you are healthy, safe, warm and dry
It's the first Saturday of the month today and that normally heralds in the Rick St Dennis Freebie Challenge held over at either Sparkle and Glitter or Airless Chambers. This month it's at Sparkle and Glitter again.
The freebie that came out with this month's newsletter is available at Rick's Zibbet store as well here if you missed out. To get on that mailing list you need to sign up on Rick's blog.
The image this month has a name - Baby Bacchus. All the EDT have been busy and created some spectacular eye candy using him.
For my part, I made a card.
Firstly, I coloured the little faun with promarkers,
Then using the sketch over at the Outlawz Wednesday's Sketch Challenge as inspiration constructed this card
The pearlised red card base was stamped with a vine like stamp (Lavinia stamps) using clear embossing ink and dusted with rich gold pan pastel. The kraft coloured centre panel embossed with "budding vine" folder before rubbing over with more of the clear embossing ink and dusting with light gold pan pastel.
Some vine type leaves, a couple of pins, some purple pearls and a basket charm added to complete

These leaves are my attempt at making my own with my new paper clay from Santa

I'd like to enter this card into the challenge at
Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge - Their Sketch of 1/1/14
Open-minded Crafting - New toys/techniques
