Pastel Christmas Card

This is a card I made using a Whoopsi Daisy image coloured in with Promarkers and kept to the colour scheme of baby pink and baby blue.  The backing papers are Bearly Mine Designs Pastel Christmas.
The card has been finished off with various die-cut elements, flower made from a book and coloured with Promarkers and a brad centre, twine sewn around the image, sentiment off the computer, Stickles glitter glue and gem stars.
