Little Holly - Raspberry Ribbon Challenge 9

Hello and welcome to another of my Dad's cards...

I LIKE this card, it turned out better than I expected. I made it for the Raspberry Ribbons Challenge. I've been following this challenge since it first started, but never got round to entering for one reason and another, but I finally got round to it and I'm very happy.
The little girl image is from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Christmas CD ROM, which was mounted onto gold Mirri card and then edged with gold border peel offs. The DP is from Creative Imaginations, and the Christmas seal is from Magnolia's new Christmas stamps. The flowers are Prima that I highlighted with Sakura Gelly roll Stardust pens, as I thought they looked a little dull and secured with copper brads in the smaller flowers and a gem brad in the larger. Finished off with some Hunter Green organza ribbon and gold border peel offs and all mounted onto Stardream pearlescent card. Well I'd better go add it to the challenge. Thank you for looking.
Take care & keep smiling

Love the card! That image is great! I adore that Victorian look; you have a real talent for it!
I was sorry to hear about your cats; it must have been awfully hard to loose them on the same day. They both do look very special and I'm sure you have plenty of wonderful memories; hope someday you'll share some with us.
My furry family enjoyed your British hug and send some cuddles in return.
