I hope you enjoy this one!

Very sweet. Would make a great greeting card!

Thank you! I only sent it as an e-card this year because I didn't have time for printing, but maybe I will print some for next time :)

I did print one at home, but the paper made it look a bit dull. It really needs a nicer paper and better quality printing to look good.

It was fun seeing this mature. It's great. I think you made some great choices bringing this to the final. Thanks always for sharing :)

I'm glad you enjoyed the process and the final. Thanks for the comments. I'll be sure to share more progress pieces in the future :)

It came together really well, E. Those curtains did draw everything together. I like that sheer effect and the little holly leaves and berries are a nice touch. Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks, glad you like it :) The curtains are one of my favourite parts of the background now, and they weren't part of the original plan.

The holly and berries were reused from previous artwork, but I thought it would be nice to give a light festive touch to the decor :)

Merry Christmas to you too!

You send this out as a Christmas card to friends and family? Its so cute!

That was the original plan, but I may not have time to go out and print them, so I think I will e-card people farther away and print a few at home for those I'll see in person.

I also want to send this out to clients as a token of appreciation and wishing them success in the new year :)

Great idea for the clients. Reminds them of your services. That's a rare combo: artist/business sense. Wish I had it, lol.

I mostly do graphic design, so this is also a reminder than I do illustration if they ever need it :)

But yeah, it is a great reminder for them and a nice way to say "I appreciate your business!"

Gives them something pretty to keep too!
