Winter Girl Christmas Card CLP-29

Happy Thursday everyone!  This is an odd week for me this week as far as posting cards, because hubby has been out of town, so I have had a few more minutes to pay attention to my blog than I usually do.  I took advantage of this for my posting, because it doesn't happen that often, and he is to be back home this afternoon. 
I took a liking to the sketch this month that Chelsea posted over at the CLP challenge blog, so I thought I would give it a try.  I admit that I had some trouble fitting it as nicely as I had hoped, because the image is a little bit big for this particular sketch, but I took a little bit of liberty with the sketch and still think it follows pretty nicely.  Chelsea has some of the cutest images, and this has been one of my favorites to work with during the winter months, so I pulled it out and this is what it became.  I really like the way it turned out.  Very festive and seems to really give me the feel of Christmas just looking at it.  I added a chipboard sentiment at the top along with a couple of poinsettias and some crystal flourishes and a lushious velvet red ribbon to the inside.

Hope you enjoy, and if you would like to play along, hop over to Chelsea's blog and post your entry.  There is also lots of awesome inspiration there if you need a mojo boost. 
Thanks for spending some time with me today.  Please leave me a comment, share your thoughts, and let me know what you think of my card.  I enjoy hearing from you and look forward to reading your inspiring comments. 

Have a wonderful day!
