Is it too early for Christmas cards?

I guess you could answer with yes or no. I mean, it's only March so Christmas is still faaaaar away, but at the same time, making all the Christmas cards in November/December never really worked out for me. So for me it's definitely better to start working on Christmas cards early, even if this means March. I've made a couple of those in the last week or so, but I won't show you all at once (I know, I know, I'm bad; he he :P). Today I'd like to show you a Tilda Christmas card.

I used the adorable Flying angel Tilda image for the center of my card and coloured her with distress inks. 

The papers are from Magnolia and Folia. I used lots of lace and ribbon on this card. They all came from my stash. The found the bead string I used around the image at the wedding department in one of the stores the other day. Pearls and feathers are from my stash. 

I used LLLC poinsettia dies for the flowers, Spellbinders scalopped circle and circle dies and Sizzix die for the small snowflake that I put in the center of my bow.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Deep ocean: Lace and pearls

CRAFT: Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's: Patterned paper
