Altered Jigsaw Piece

Just managed to find time to have a go at the altered jigsaw challenge on The Papergirls blog. There is an excellent template for the jigsaw piece on their blog as well (which I used as I didn't have a large jigsaw piece to alter.) The only other stipulation for the challenge it to include some bling (so I included loads - on the snowflakes, on the lettering and on the corners :) - you can never have too much bling!)
The little girl images are from the Paperbag Studios Dreamer sheet. Tim Holtz used the WISH letters on one of his 12 Days of Christmas Tags so I grabbed that idea along with his alcohol inked background technique :)
