Clean And Simple Christmas

Gosh, that title seems to be a contradiction for me.  My Christmas is usually as messy and complicated as you can get it!
I've used the sketch from The Sugar Bowl #70 which has a clean and simple theme and kept it Christmas for Winter Wonderland's CAS challenge.  The stamp is Tammy from the Simply Sassy range and I have experimented with Polychromos to colour her, although I realised I don't have a good flesh colour so I will have to sort that out when I find some for sale next.
The paper is American Crafts Daydreams - Blissful Day, left over from the 'Melon Pops' layout I made here.  The background is stamped using Martha Stewart's stamp around the page, which I really must get back out of the box and play with some more.
The embellishments are punched pine branches and snowflakes along with an odd flower I had left from a QVC kit and a dusting of Stickles.  I have just realised that I left the greeting off, how daft is that, I've used stickers from The Girls Paperie, here's the completed card.
Just a couple of other 'Anything Goes' challenges to add for Simon Says Stamp and Scrapbook Sisters card challenge #58.
