How to: sit and wait for X-mas

Hello everyone, a little less hot today plus more wind, but still too hot for me. It's better to stay inside, so I made another X-mas card, with Magnolia stamp this time.
For a better start I've used an 'old' sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge.
For the card I used a 'Sweet Christmas Tilda' stamp - it's colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam. I've cut her around a little square to make it different this time.
This is a mix of digital papers from Shabby Princess and Papercraft Inspirations. They are distressed and I added some lace, ribbon, pearls, charm and metal stars.
The sentiment says 'Merry X-mas' and I've made it on my own.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
I would like to enter the following challenges:

Absolutely gorgeous and I love the snowflake frame around her and the little bunting is such a lovely touch.

Really nice take on the sketch Anna! I love all the texture! The pennants in the Christmasy paper is delightful as is the gauze ? material. Very fun to closely inspect all your details! Thank you for sharing your project & creativity with us!

Thank you for your comment about the airbrushing... you're laughing, but I could feel a slight pressure behind the eye balls when blowing, I thought they were going to pop out :D Laughing again just thinking about it... LOL..try it, see what you think. I do recommend wearing goggles.. just in case :))
take care, Anna! Speak soon!
