Some Odd Girl - Christmas Card

Hi guys! I finished my assignments the other day! *wooh!* So, now, I just have a couple of exams, and I'm finished with uni for the year! Woohoo! 
So, I sat down and crafted! I pulled out some old stuff, and some new stuff and came up with this -
 
I started out by grabbing a piece of Webster's Pages Project Life style card, and trimmed it down, to fit my card base (rounding the edges), then I stitched a border around the card, using my trusty sewing machine. I then dug through my Some Odd Girl stamps, and decided to use an all time favourite - Gifty Gwen, I stamped her, and coloured her up, using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I trimmed her out, leaving a thin white border, then mounted her on top of a crochet doily (something I have a massive hoard of), and attached her to the card front.  I stamped and embossed then sentiment (which is one I've never used before!) and then attached some sequins, before doodling all around the card edges... 
Here is the close up of Gwen -
