Do you believe...

...in Fairies?

The current challenge over at "Winter Wonderland" is to use Fairies or Angels as the main image on a Christmas card...whilst over at "LOTV", challenge 107 provides a sketch for use - I have combined the two.
I have used this cute little fairy miss (LOTV image) and tried for a more vintage Christmassy look. I have used fairly traditional colours this time around.
The sentiment is cut from some satin ribbon that I found tucked away in my stash - the red & green ribbons were in the same pack.
The blooms are from a mix of sources - Papermania, 99p Store, and some unknown from my stash. Some punched fronds again (Martha Stewart punch) mixed in with the blooms and did you notice the little silver fairy bells tucked away in there too.
My little miss has pretty glittery wings (Ice stickles - what else LOL) and a bit of glitz to her wand and head decoration.

The base card is made from smooth white CS with a matt of antiqued holly CS on top. The image panel has been cut/embossed with my Nesties - scalloped ovals. All the edges have been distressed using a Frayed burlap distress ink pad.

You will find lots of ideas and inspiration over on both sites so why not go and take a look - there is even time for you to play along if you'd like to..............
