My efforts at doing childrens cards!!

I have had a few orders for christmas cards so been really with that for the last couple of weeks.
A few friends have asked me to make Christmas cards for their children. They have all more or less been character decoupage cards so it's been quite easy but means I haven't played with my stamps for a while :(
Anyway just as I thought I would be stuck with making the same characters over and over again, (all little girls love disney princess or pooh bear!!) I was asked if I could do a Littlest Pet Shop Card for someone's daughter as they are her favourite thing at the moment. My girls have some Littlest Pet Shop Toys so I knew what she was talking about but I had never seen a card made with an image of them so I went off searching for an image i could use for a card, which I found out wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.
I finally found a picture that I could use, which was like one of the posters you get with all the characters on it in little circles. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but after much debating, I decided I would layer all the characters up in their circles. Only problem then was that it didnt look very festive so i added a few embelishments and I think its turned out surprisingly good. Ive posted a pic below so please let me know what you think :)

Now some of the christmas cards are done, I will maybe have time to do a few challenge cards :)
