Untraditional Christmas

Here's another card I just finished.  I was hoping to get it entered in the Friday Sketchers Challenge, as that's the sketch I followed, but it apepars I'm too late once again - I need to get better at these deadlines!  But anyways, it's another Christmas card finished nonetheless and I'm happy with it overall.  I wasn't too sure about the color scheme of pink, blue, and green, but I like the way it turned out.  The paper is from Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses) and the image is from the Merry Little Christmas line from Magnolia.  I colored her with my Copics, then cut her out with my Deckled Rectangles Spellbinders.  I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink, added the sentiment and some of the Prima mini roses in pink and blue.

Here's another angle:

And the inside, which is decorated to match the sketch of the front.  I hope you like it!
