X-mas girl on a box

I have not been able to visit your blogs, since I have been in bed with fever and a soar throat. It has been really boring - not being able to do anything. Well - this afternoon I felt so much better, so I decided to have a go at last weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday - Red and Green. I decided to make a box for a little girl (X-mas pressie to go inside - but that's a secrete of course ;-) with my Top Score multiboard (purchased in our local shop Pysselakuten).

Cardstock and DPs from our local shop, ribbons from stash and the image is made by me (yepp - needed to do something while I was hallucinating in bed and took my sketch book out ;-)) and coloured with SU markers, highlighted with stickles and white gel pen. I got inspired from one of my very old child books - the Riding Hood Red. Well - here she became a X-mas girl wishing Merry X-mas with her cute companion the mouse Felix.

Looking fwd to hear your comments ladies.



PS. It's so dark here so the colours are not really the same in real life as in the pic, but..
