Crafty Calendar December Challenge

Good morning...errrr afternoon! I'm running really late today, have my Granddaughters staying while their parents enjoy a short break in Cologne. The girls are no trouble and we really enjoy having them to stay, but the time seems to disappear even faster when they are here! 
I've three cards to share today, all DT makes, this one is for December's challenge at Crafty Calendar, the theme is 'anything BUT  Christmas and use ribbon'- a chance to have a break from the Christmas cards! sponsors for this month are Oddball Art and Crafty Ribbons

I made a birthday card for my teenage niece using a sponsor digi, Aya tags the wall. I printed the image twice, once onto grey cardstock, I coloured just the sprayed art  then embossed with a brick wall ef. The second time I printed the image onto white card, coloured just the girl, fussy cut her and pieced her over the grey image as I didn't want her embossed like a brick wall! (Not a good look for anyone!). I layered the 'wall' onto black card and then onto a piece of card which was inked with brushos, ac few tiny die cut stars added to echo the art on the wall.  The bunting is made from snippets of ribbon and twine, sentiments are stamped.
For details of prizes and how to play along, hop over to Crafty Calendar.
Thanks for looking!
