Lili of the Valley Christmas Card Swap

I made this card to send to Julie for the Lili of the Valley Christmas Card Swap using a lovely 'Girlie' Christmas image - I can post the card as Julie has told me she's received it.

I layered holly paper onto a square of dark red card and attached it to the card front before die cutting and embossing the precoloured image and attached it to the centre.  The small poinsettia flowers were die cut and embossed from red card and attached to the top and bottom corners.  The gold flowers were die cut from a snippet of gold holographic card and attached to the centre of the poinsettias.  To finish I added a Wink of Stella to the fur on the girl's clothing and Stickles to the snowflakes.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white card blank
     Lili of the Valley 'Girlie Christmas' Art Sheet
     Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Decorative Labels One', 'All Occasions Dies 'Small Poinsettia' and Memory Box 'Mini Holly Leaves' dies
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Wild Rose Studio 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper
     Dark red embossed card
     Diamond Stickles
     Wink of Stella
I am entering the following challenges:
     Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Stockings and/or Other Winter Clothing     
     Merry Little Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas GoesCha
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Christmas

This is the lovely card I received from Julie:

A very sweet LOTV image Kath which looks great with the pretty die cut edges and love the holly paper in the background matted on to red which coordinates with the poinsettias beautifully. x

Sorry, I forgot to say that Julie's return card is very pretty too with such a jolly looking Santa and beautiful background. x
