Last Christmas card this year......

Or should I say my first Christmas card for next year. This is another first for me ... my first digi stamp. It is Snow Fairy from Sketching Stamper I think she is so pretty, I couldn't resist.

 I've used a backing paper from Blonde Moments and coloured her with promarkers and a sakura clear stardust pen. The ribbon was from my stash as were the brads and gems, the tiny snowflakes are punched from vellum and sprayed with silver glitter spray. I've used a vellum tag inked with versacolor 'pacific' ink pad. Over that is a creative acrylics tag using silver detail EP for the sentiment and I embossed the back of the tag with sparkle and sprinkle EP in skylight.
I used a sketch from the Truly Scrumptious challenge blog, love the simple lines of this sketch, the extra was to use some vellum - I was going to use stamped vellum for the background but it just didn't work so I've added the tiny vellum snowflakes and tag. I'm also using this card for the Dare you to Digistamp challenge which is Last Minute Christmas cards - they don't get any more last minute than this lol

I can't believe New Years Eve has come round so quickly, a night in watching the Hootenanny for me and OH tonight but my son is going to a huge rave until 7am, don't envy him the hangover lol. He's got friends round now and is blasting out the music so I'm going to retreat to the sofa with a coffee and my inktense pencils for a quiet afternoon.
Happy New Year and thanks for looking
