Under the Mistletoe

I made this card for Kenny K's current challenge, Pumps & Pearls.

I printed the image and cut it out using my Silhouette.  I then coloured it with pencil crayons, adding rather too much silver eyeshadow, LOL.  I added some liquid pearls to the mistletoe in the woman's hand and liquid applique to make the fur lining on her outfit pop.

I wanted to try a gate fold card, and managed to make the flaps a little too small.  Ah well, it led to my using the oval in the centre, which I like.  I attached some patterned paper to my white cardstock base, then the inked oval.  The woman's attached with pop-dots.  For the 'pearls', I added some liquid pearl dots around the oval and the black pearl flourish at the side.

I'm thinking this card will go to a guy so I didn't want too much around the image.  I haven't stamped the sentiment inside, but I'm thinking of using 'Naughty or Nice'.
