The artwork has a victorian gothic feel, I can imagine this lady living in an old mansion, with iron gates and high brick walls :D
Yet, the artwork still has an elegant feel, and I like that elegance. Just adds a bit of class to a festive card.
I used backing papers too, with this card that came with one of Debbi Moore's craft mags, I find the papers can be a little over detailed, but with the topper being of a reasonable size, the backing pattern doesnt overwhelm
I added some detailed embellishments, as I wanted to add to the opulent feel to this card. So the holly is cut out in fine glittered card, the leaves are painted with cosmic paint
