I was lucky enough to win this stamp and as I wanted to make a Christmas card in untraditional colours thought I would make a completely untraditional card. She has been coloured with Promarkers. I also used a Sakura pen and lots of glitter for sparkle. The papers are Wild Rose from last year and I used a MS border punch, MB snowflake corner die, Anita's ribbon, pearl sprays from Wild Orchid, ribbon flowers from Meiflower and roses from Michaels.
