A Christmas Card and 7 Challenges!

I finally had a bit of time to make a few things that are not for any DT, and I tried to combine as many challenges as I could in one card. Although it was a bit harder this time as most of the challenges I like to do were sketches, I managed to get 7 challenges in one card and here is the result:
I really like how this card turned out! I used this image since I haven't used her for quite some time, and thought these papers were good for the look I was going for. I sponged the edges of all the papers before putting them on the card and also sponged along the card base as well. The organdy ribbon was threaded through the buttons (thanks for the tip on getting the ribbon through the tiny button holes Jessica ~ it worked great) and then tied it in a bow. After completing three of these, I added them to the ends of the lace trim on the card. I sponged the edges of my image and sentiment and added them to the card. The thing I would change is the spacing on my eyelets, but it's too late now.....oh well...
