It's A Green Christmas

Hi all I have made this card for the following challenges:
I hope you don't mind looking at a few photos of this one.
I have used an 8x8 card base, the image is a Pachela Studios Digi called Toby Tumblers Happy Times and available HERE
I have coloured the image with Copics and mounted onto Green Mirror Card, the base spotted paper is Bearlymine, the next bp is Basic Grey, both papers have been distressed and mounted onto Green Mirror card.
I have used green lace and a Christmas silk ribbon and bow.  I added some wooden snowflakes which I coloured with Copics, I have also added gems, pearls, pin, butterflies, Holly and a stamped sentiment.
I have added Star Dust Stickles to the flowers and image for a snow effect.
The pictures below show more closer detail.


You may not believe this but I wanted to make a clean and simple card, the trouble was I added some flowers and then it looked bare, so I added the snowflakes, it still looked bare, so then I added more flowers and all the rest of the embellishments, now I am not sure I like it, please let me know what you think.

Hi Lorraine
Its probaly because it is a 8x8 card I sometimes struggle with a 6x6 trying to get it filled, but it is gorgeous love the colours and that little image is beautiful and so is your flowers and flutterby's.
Hope you are having a nice weekend.

Oh Lorraine you are making some just fabulous pieces, it is a real pleasure to go back and see what I have been missing.
Sorry I haven't been over to see you - but I am still alive, just. I have had the girls today so must catch up with paperwork tomorrow, and I am determined to still keep the creating and making going.
Thanks for all your support - it's lovely to have blogging friends like you.
Take care.

Such a pretty card! Your story is so funny about how you started out with a CAS card in mind, then ended up addding all the embellies. I think all us papercrafters do that!
