First Christmas Card 2012

Good Afternoon everyone.  Happy Sunday to you all and hope you have all had a smashing weekend.  Really cold here and there's still frost on the ground.  It does look pretty.

Anyway I know it's the third week in January coming up and I've finally managed to make my first Christmas card.


I have used this cute Little Gorjuss stamp which I won  last year and didn't get around to inking up.

Stamp and Sentiment - Little Gorjuss - Winter Wonder
Coloured with Prisma Pencils
Backing Papers - Very old scraps
Punch - Martha Stewart Arched Lattice
Ribbon, gems and stars - From stash

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Sketch
Simon Says - Spots or Stripes
ABC Christmas - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Be a Star

I have not got myself sorted with Christmas 2012 - just recovering still from 2011. Like the orange & green - makes me think of tangerines, Clementines etc.... around Christmas. That background is not an easy one to use without the image disappearing but colouring her the way you have it works beautfully, especially with your star embellishments. We had severe frost yesterday.
