Triangular card, sadly not chocolates

This image was sent to me as a rak and as there was nothing written on the back I can't tell you who 's it is, never the less it's a fun image and thought it would be ideal for my sons godparents daughter, who is a very fun loving younglady. I hope she likes it.

 I have had these triangle cards for ages and am never sure quite how to decorate them but decided I'd have a play as there is a multi fold challenge on at moving along with the times. I used one last week to make a tree card but decided to try something different  this time.

I think the image is called jungle rock or something like that and I'm sure all you clever crafters will tell me the correct name. I stamped stars on the outer two sides and embossed with razzle red embossing powder, though am quite disappointed with the lack of sparkle, the gold and silver always look so vibrant, this just seems to lack zing.



The image I coloured with promarkers and sakura glitter pen and faithful stickles for bling. The sentiment is from a Kanban set I think but not 100% sure. Sorry if I'm wrong.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Moving along with the times-more than one fold
Winter wonderland-no square or rectangle cards
Charisma-one for the girls
Stampitcrazy-christmas


The second triangle card I made used a freebie image from Baby bud designs that I never quite got around to entering in their challenge at the time. It's quite cute being a snowdrop and I stuck to that colour scheme. This time I added stamped buttons in silver razzle embossing powder and doodled on 'tinsel lines', and finished with a few bows. Of the two cards I'm not sure which I prefer, one thing I am sure of is that when I've used the remainder of the pack of triangular cards I will not be buying any more unless some one can suggest a great way to use them as I am so not convinced they are a good idea.
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-

Meljen-buttons and bows
Speedy the cats friends-Bow on your card
Just us girls- 3D embellishment
Sweet stampin-buttons and bows
