Hundreds of homes will soon have the winning entry in Theresa May's Christmas card competition posted through their letterboxes.
Talented young artist Gabrielle Ford beat of the opposition of more than 100 entries with her bold bauble design.
A printer in Ruscombe then used it to produce hundreds of cards to be sent out to the politician's friends, family, colleagues and even PM David Cameron.
Mrs May said the design would be printed on about 700 cards.
The 10-year-old got her first look at the finished product on Friday at the Holiday Inn in Manor Lane.
Art-loving Gabrielle said she loves Christmas decorations particularly baubles and thought they would be a good way to present the festive spirit.
The Furze Platt Junior school pupil, who lives in Maidenhead, said: "I didn't think I would win. I was thrilled and over the moon. I have never actually won a competition like this before."
The prize for the Maidenhead schoolgirl, donated by the Holiday Inn, is a trip to Alton Towers.
