The Night Before Christmas

Hello again
Well 2 posts from me today, I really should save one for tomorrow but then again it will give me an excuse to make another card. hehehe! Please scroll down and check out my earlier post!
Now I tried really really really really hard with my colouring on this one, I think there is an improvement with my shading? Do you think I have done any better? I do get a bit down sometimes when my colouring lets me down, I really am not a natural! Never mind I will keep at it! I am blabbing on a bit tonight I think it is because I have had a little glass of wine, got some great 80's music on the radio, going down memory lane. LOL!
I really enjoyed the colour scheme for this card and I am entering into four challenges;
Sketch Saturday - Loved this sketch!
LOTV - One for the girls
Charisma - With Love at Christmas
Allsorts - Twas the night before Christmas
The stamp is LOTV, the paper is Dream Street Papers 'Wonderland' the snowflakes are punched using a Kars punch and covered with twinklets and I have used a spacer( I think that's what it is called) in the centre. The flowers and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have added some cosmic shimmer round her feet, hence the flat picture, it shows better from this angle!
I hope you like it, thanks for popping in.
