Traditional?

Afternoon peeps! 

You know when you're just not sure about a card, like the placement of all the bits of paper and embellishments... I had this yesterday. Cut everything to size and die cut all the bits, got the ribbon ready with it's bow, went to stick it down... didn't like it. So chucked it all in the box n started again. Now, I'm hoping this falls under traditional colours as I don't seem to do traditional coloured cards?! 

Anyhows, here is the masterpiece.. well... 

Full Card
 The only thing I kept the same was the layout! I've used a Some Odd Girl image and coloured her with Spectrum Noirs. I added a few highlights as well. Funny old pen that I used. I didn't think I had done it properly to start with then it just darker and darker lol. The snowflakes are die-cuts cut in half and stuck down behind the greeting. Some embossing and a load of pearls and gems and finished. #
