Another girlie Christmas card!

I have to admit... I'm really pleased with this one! It's very girlie, and actually a lot of fun to make (if terribly messy... distressing paper is as messy as it is fun! lol) And I am oficially in love with seam binding! It is soooooo much easier to use than other ribbon, and looks so lovely! Must get me some more!

I added Stickles to the girl's coat (the white part) as well as some of the the flowers.

I am especially pleased with how the flower arrangement turned out...


Image - "Festive post" - LOTV
Medium: Promarkers
Papers: Me to You "Winter Wonderland"
Flowers and pearl ribbon slider - WOC
Ribbon: Seam binding from The Ribbongirl
Sentiment: LOTV on a Papermania Urban Stamps tag...
White and pink card, lace and pearls from stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
LOTV ideas to inspire - Ribbon and lace (second entry)

Have a shiny day!
