Christmas card

Hi Everyone, I'm following the Art by Miran Progressive Challenge and the image for this month is Eirwen, which I love, especially as I recognise this name as a Welsh one :). I am still a VERY new hand colourer and I have used SN's on this.

After I had coloured her I wasn't that happy with the fur effect, so thought I would see how others did their fur colouring and came across this beautiful card   I added more colouring, however, I am still struggling with folds etc, but I thought not too bad to add to a card. I cut her out with an oval die and the patterned die, printed 3 border images, from PS, on another piece of card to add behind and then added a debossed pattern, which I thought matched the die to the edge of the card.
