It's not a Christmas card!

I've been overdosing on Christmas cards recently...so I decided to have a go at Dawny's fab sketch over at the Anyone for Anya Challenge. I've combined it with the yummy sounding colour combo of 'Hot Pink, Dusky Pink and Ice Chocolate' of the Colour Create Challenge. I received the image in a swap...and as it wasn't stamped on a big enough piece of card to follow the sketch exactly...I added a few Poppicrafts flowers. The papers are by BasicGrey ('Blush' - the brown one) and My Mind's Eye ('Adore' the pink one), the sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts, and I added some doodling, and faux stitching with a gel pen.
