A Special Christmas Card

My Mom asked me to make a Christmas card for her sister (my Aunt). She didn't give me any ideas or guidelines, she just gave me free reign to create. I love that!!! My Aunt is a girly girl and I was close to making a non-traditional Christmas card with pink as the focal color, but somehow I wound up with this? It's funny how that happens sometimes, right?! I combined quite a few sets here...PTI Peace Be Still, Stocking Prints, Fancy Flourishes & wplus9 Fair Isle Backgrounds.

I love the flourishes in Crumb Cake with pops of red that look like poinsettias. I added a bit of bling (what girly girl doesn't love bling) to the snowflake and Dazzling Diamonds to the center of the Fair Isle images. I also added some sponging to the edges of the Top Note and embossed background.

I sure hope she likes it!
