Christmas Card with a Valentine's Image


I loved this ADFD image from the minute I first spotted it and just had to have it! With Valentine's behind us I thought Iwould make a Christmas card with it. I think with the sparkly wings and red and white color scheme it works, but I'd love to hear your opinion about it too....
I colored the image using Promakers and the hearts have got a coat of glossy accent to them.
The stitched panels with red and white DPs have been on my desk for about 6 months now, and I've tried it with different images, but just couldn't find the right one, until today. I stamped a Christmas greeting and added 3 red heart shaped sequins and voilà!

This card is for these challenges:
1) Jingle Belles - Rudolph the *RED* Nosed Reindeer - use predominantly RED
2) Winter Wonderland - The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
3) Addicted to Stamps and More - #83 Holidays
4) 4 Crafty Chicks - #182 Things with Wings
5) Aud Sentiments Challenge - #100- Bingo (vertical middle row)
6) Fab 'n' Funky - #204 Spots or stripes
7) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

It works! I absolutely love the way you've positioned this image on the edge of the square - that stitching looks great. The stripes are reminiscent of candy cane and, with the sentiment, come Christmas no-one will know it was designed for Valentines.
