Willow Shopping

Well organised Willow, has already started her Christmas shopping and as you see, it looks like she has a very healthy spending habit - definitely my kind've girl!  She was one of 3 lovely Whiff of Joy Willow stamps I recently won - how lucky am I?  At least ... I'm pretty sure she's a Whiff of Joy stamp.
Quick Question: 
Does anyone else get mixed up over which of Elizabeth Bell's stamps are Whiff of Joy, Sugar Nellie, and Belles and Whistles or am I the only numpty?  I tend to avoid joining in with any of their blog challenges in case I use the wrong image.  How do you tell which is which?
Anyway ... I stamped Willow using Memento black ink and then paper-pieced her clothes and shopping bags before using Sakura glitter pens for the tissue paper.
Promarkers were used to colour her hair, skin and boots before adding an adhesive gem to her necklace for a little bitta' bling.
The square card blank was cut diagonally down the front and then papers from English Paper Company were cut to match the triangle shapes, matted onto textured cardstock leaving a narrow border and then added to the main card with double-sided tape.
The poinsettia flower was created by cutting simple petal shapes from red card and folding them in half before sticking onto a gold snowflake embellishment and adding some amber adhesive gems.
Willow is going to be submitted into the following challenges ...
Passion for Promarkers 53 - Anything Goes
Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge 21 - Poinsettia and Diagonal Cut/Modern
