A little red robin!

I've just made a card for my mother and it's a bit different from my usual "over-embellished" style...I keep looking at it and wondering if I could add something else but have left it as it is because the glitter paper is quite "loud" enough..
I followed the sketch from this week's sketch at PapercraftPlanet and used my digi Robin and house..It's been coloured with Promarkers and I added Deco snow writer and some glitter.
I have embossed 2 Marianne Creatable die cuts with my Swiss Dots embossing folder and used them as a frame before mounting this on glitter paper.
I'm still not too sure about the empty space and if I don't get it into an envelope soon it will be covered in swirls etc!!
The challenges for this one are
Passion for Promarkers...mega Christmas
Daring Cardmakers.....Snow much fun
Allsorts...Last minute Christmas
Stamp with Fun...Christmas
The Pink Elephant.... Winter Wonderland

I think that's it!
