Emerald Eyes -- In A Sweet Pea Dream -- Christmas -- Challenge # 3

For this challenge I used a stamp I wouldn't normally use for Christmas... I used the Purple Hearts image which is perfect for Valentine's Day.  I put my own spin on it for Christmas and I really like how it came out.  I knew it was good when I showed it to my daughter Kyla and she didn't say anything right away she was just looking at it.  : )   Okay now the card info. As usual  I did the background with my pearlescent chalks and colored the image with watercolor pencils.  The glitter used on this one was Art institute in Cranberry (flowers,hair) ~ Apple (dress,hair) ~ Old Gold ~ Mustard (mask, wings) ~ Autumn (hair).  Stuff by David ~ Salmon Laser (inner wings).  I also added crystal hearts and rhinestones. The big red and green Gumdrops (I like to call them that, since that is what they look like) are from Martha Stewart.  Hope you enjoyed her and thanks for looking :)
