Mo's Christmas

Hi there, I hope your all having a nice weekend with a bit of you time thrown in, we are having gorgeous weather here, it really is like the middle of summer, so what better way to cool down than make a Christmas card.
I felt I needed to reward myself since I managed to demolish one of my ironing piles, two more to go, and one that I keep hiding because it's clothes I don't like to iron. Do you do that, have clothes that are always last to get done because they are a pain to iron.

Anyway what better reward than an image from Mo's digital pencil. I colourd her with copics,
used Dovecraft papers. Robert Adams snowflake die, WOC flower ribbon, I really love this ribbon but didn't realise the net would melt when I heated my Frantage powder up, but I really love the effect it has left. birdcage die and flat back pearls, oh nearly forgot I distressed the edges with my scissors and a bit of distress ink, gathered twigs I think, 
Thank you for looking, I'm entering this in the following;
