Mojo's Winterwonderland

Up until I was about 5 years old, one of our neighbours called me Me Too.  It is said that whenever and whatever individuals were doing around me - I was always shouting "me too, me too". 
When best matey Julie started to introduce me to the enormous variety of craft toys out there, she demonstrated Twinklin H2Os from Luminart.  It appears that I never grew out of my Me Tooness as I went straight out and bought a bunch which have been hidden in my Craft Room almost ever since and in any event for at least the last 18 months.
Scanning my Excel spreadsheet with my challenges (I know - how sad that I have a spreadsheet!) I came across the Winterwonderland challenge site which wanted us to use a traditional Christmas flower.  So, as there is only just over a week to go before the Summer Soltice and the nights will start drawing in thereafter, what better time to make a Christmas Card using my unused Leanne Ellis Pointsettia Girl and a fabulous sketch over at Mojo MondayI felt sure that the Twinklin H2Os would combine well with some absolutely fabulous K&Co paper which has a large shiny pointsettia on it. 
You don't really get the feel of these special iridescent water colours from the photograph so I have taken another shot at an odd angle in the hope that you will be able to see how the paint changes colour.  I used Copics on her face, hair and hands but used the Twinklies on all the mounting and a fab ribbon from my stash.  You can click on any image for a closer view.  Thank you for stopping by.
