A Pastel Christmas Card

Hi everyone, well here I am again with another Christmas card, that's another one for the box, thank goodness the numbers are starting to swell a bit now.
This is one of the new Teddy Bo and Bea images I purchased the other day, (I'm sure you'll be seeing the others sometime soon) isn't she so sweet?

I'm entering this card for the following challenges:
The Sweet Stop - Sketch #132
Teddy Bo - Pastels
 Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Anything Goes

Card Details:
* Image - TeddyBea #162
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens
* Sentiment Ticket - Magnolia
* Papers - An assortment from my stash (mostly K & Co)
* Punch - EK Success 'Retro Flower'
* Everything else from my stash

I decided to use an A5 card for this sketch, now it's finished I think that was probably a mistake as I've got too much blank space. It probably would have been much better on a square card......ah well, {sigh!}

It mite sound odd but I'm so glad you said it would have been better as a square. I feel that every time I do a rectangle card, so it's good to know I'm not alone.
You card is beautiful and fit's perfectly with our pastel's challenge at Teddy Bo.
