Good morning bloggers - another Christmas card today. This one features the Holly Fairy by Ching-chou Kuik that was part of a prize I won a few weeks ago. I've coloured her with pro markers and used crystal stickles on her wing and platinum stickles on her hair. I must admit that it wasn't until after I had coloured the background that it occurred to me that I might struggle with papers! Fortunately, two earth tones ones came to my rescue. The large piece is from the Abstract 2 earth tones collection and the central strip is from the Embossed Dots earth tones collection and I used a couple of strips of the papermania hand made glitter paper to give it a lift. I've embellished with a robo die cut for the greeting and a couple of 3D short petal flowers printed onto the back of gold mirri with the platinum stickles in the centre. I wouldn't normally use these shades of green for Christmas, but I rather like how they worked. Sadly, all the lovely glitter isn't showing too well in the photo.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
- Sketch 'n' Stamp - sketch

Thank you for calling by today and I hope you are having a good one.
