LOTV Challenge + a few others

Good Afternoon my friends!! Just a quick post from me. After the stressful week I've had and studying so hard to get my Indefinate Leave to Remain I thought I would just chill today and create a card just for fun for a change. The first stamp that sprung to mind was LOTV and it had to be this little Sweetie. I'll never forget when the dt were teasing us with samples of the new release, Bev used her and I was in luv hehe. I have coloured her in with very much the same colours as Bev's so thanks for the inspiration Hun. My card and colouring isn't half as fab as hers though but I tried! The dps I've used are all Magnolia and I've distressed all the edges. The sentiment is also one of LOTV's from last year's Christmas collection. The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have coloured her in with Copics and used loads of glamour dust for sparkle. The stars have been coloured in with a Gold gel pen. I'll be entering this card into the following challenges :
Allsorts - Free and easy
Aud Sentiments - Merry Christmas (hope my Happy Christmas is ok?)
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas in July
LOTV challenge - Roses
Paperplay - Christmas in August
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
