Holly Hobbie Christmas with non traditional colours

In yesterdays post I used this same stamp "Holly Hobbie Christmas Joy " the free gift with cardmaking and papercraft. I did so enjoy colouring it , I decided to use it again in different colours, I like this colour combo but I would like to know what you think compared with this card.
The paper is paper cellar checks. The sentiment from a card mag. The wooden snow flake , kars ,to which I've added distress inks , a hobby craft button and pearl flourishes from the hobby house.

Well the sun is shinning here again, lovely walk, bit nippy though, frosty dew on the golf course.
Have a good Sunday. I have a job interview tomorrow, so fingers crossed.

I didn't bother getting this mag and now I wish I had. You've made it look much nicer than the magazine did Jane. Gorgeous.

Hi Jane

This is gorgeous and sent me down memory lane.

Our table mats when we were first married (many moons ago) had Holly Hobbie on them!! We wore them out before I would replace them .. .. I loved them so much.

Hope you had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

This is a wonderful card - I just LOVE the paper you've used as background and I love the contrast of the rather manly paper and the girlie Holly Hobby and feminine swirls of pearls. Fabulous!
