Sun is Shining and...

... I've just finished a Christmas card!

I've had this card on my desk for a while. I started it for a challenge but then I thought it was not right and I put it aside.

Then I started to assemble it again but I needed something to finish it: I wanted some flowers and I was waiting for an order I made in the UK to arrive. So the card was put on hold for a second time.

Finally, yesterday my paper roses arrived but no, they were not right (except for the little green rose I put on the sentiment) and I decided to opt for a ribbon.

I wanted a fresh, girly look for a Christmas card, nothing traditional.

Here's my card:
This lovely little girl doing her Christmas shopping is a digi from Di's Digis colored with watercolor pencils and LOTS of glitter where she has fur on her coat and hat.

The card follows a recipe given by The ABC Christmas Challenge: E for Embossing and 3 Embellishments.
I've used a hot pink card (it's a wonderful hot pink, I probably found it as a gift on a magazine and it was the last one...) which I've embossed with snowflakes on the right side. I've added a patterned paper from Papermania and three embellisments: a ribbon bow, a metal bell and a paper flower.

I'm so happy it's now finished even if Christmas is so far away...
