Stampendous Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hello and happy Saturday! I'm so glad I made the time to play the Stampendous Saturday Sketch Challenge; I really needed a bit of therapeautic recreation to rejuvinate after the work week. I'm wondering...what do you like to do to rejuvinate? Please comment and tell me about it!
This week the challenge was to make a winter or Christmas card; I was delighted, as I love to make holiday cards! I choose "Shopper Chick" because she is fun to color and the packages look great with a bit of glitter on them. (My Stampendous addiction all started with the Calendar Chicks. I saw them and fell in love! Next I discovered Fluffles, Changito, and the Bees.... I love them all, but Changito is my very favorite! The images make me happy; some of them even make me laugh!) I chose to embellish the card sparingly; I really like the DP and didn't want to cover up the Christmas words. The iridescent ribbon mimics the glitter I applied to the packages. The card is 5 1/2 inches square.
