Pink Gem Challenge 6

This is a card that I have made for the Pink Gem Challenge 6 - optional theme is to decorate the inside of the card.  I really like the little image of Chloe with the snowflake, so decided to use her again and this time maybe as a Christmas card. Wasn't sure about the sketch and how to use it, so just kind of made it up as I went along.  I decided to back the snowflakes onto red, as they didn't really show up on their own.  The gems I placed three at the bottom left and three at the top right, then thought it might look better with both sides fully done.  Only then did I realise the colours weren't matching, but think it looks ok with the colours staggered.  Had finished the card last night and only when I read over the challenge again, did I remember about doing the inside of the card.  Have thought about this before, but never done it, so tried it this morning and it wasn't to bad. May do more like this again.
