There's something magical about Christmas' Challenge # 57 At Digistamps For Joy

It is time for a new Challenge over at Digistamps For Joy , why not pop over and have a look and try your hand, we always love top see what you can create!
I adore this image so much I used it on the card for my only Grandchild ~ and much adored by my husband and me! Holly. Born at Christmas time six years ago.
I used traditional Christmas colours and my inspiration was her face when we saw some fantastic Christmas lights last year. Her rapture whilst gazing at them is so similar. That is the Magic of Christmas for me, the look in a childs eye.
I used a fantastic digi from Digistamps4 Joy and she is called Winter face and she has to be a staple of anyone's Christmas Stamp collection.

I coloured her with alcohol pens
I matted onto white CS, wrapped a red spotty ribbon around, and used my WW border punch on the bottom and matted onto silver to allow the snowflakes to show through
I covered the top half of the card with a Kanban DP and the bottom with a blue pearl
I generated my own sentiment on the PC
I added a pretty red flower, just because!

I would like to try my luck at:
