A Non-Traditional Christmas Card

That's the theme for this fortnight over at Stampotique's challenge blog, and here is the card I made, using one of my latests acquisitions, Mela (isn't she cute?)
I've used DCWV metallic cs in a lavender colour, stamping Mela onto a piece of white wc card, colouring her with a purple wc pencil (and a brown one for her shoes) and adding DM to the heart on her dress, and to her shoes.      I then distressed the edges, adding some pink ink and punching a corner out.   That was then layered over a darker purple cs, and as a finishing touch, I added some silver ribbon and a printed sentiment (from Darkroom Door)

Mela looks very 'hip' in her rather trendy purple dress!
The silver ribbon is the perfect embellishment :)
