LOTV Xmas card

Isn't this such an adorable LOTV image? I coloured her with blendable pencils and decorated her trim with stardust stickles. I decorated the card with various embellishments from the crafty weekend goody bag and finished off with a sentiment. I can't believe I haven't remembered where all these bits and pieces are from - useless brain! I have just this second also realised that I haven't coloured the wispy bits of hair around her face - oops! - will do that tomorrow!

I took my cards and jewellery into work today and everyone seemed suitably impressed :D They are all trying to convince me to sell my stuff so I might be having a stall at the Christmas shopping evening if there's any stalls left - exciting! They're also trying to convince me to do a workshop for them - need to work up the confidence for that one and design some simple but effective cards that won't be too difficult to make in a couple of hours.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sweet Stamps - Lots of Layers
The Emerald Faerie - Flowers, flowers, flowers
Squiggles stamps - Christmas cheer
Friday Sketch - Sketch
Aud's sentiments - Winter theme
Lili of the Valley - Warm and Cosy
