Christmas Fairy

I just got some gorgeous new sweet pea stamps and as I'd already coloured  Ching Chou Kuiks's lovely Holly Fairy, i thought she would be perfect for this weeks challenge at Bah Humbug which is... Angels and Fairies,


Sorry for the dogdy photo, my new camera is still totally baffling me lol. Holly Fairy is coloured with promarkers and I embossed the holly berries and her wings with clear sparkle EP. I used scraps of some Anna Griffin papers and followed the layout from the sketch at ABC Christmas Challenge which is also to make a quick and easy card.

 I stamped the Sweet Pea sentiment on a red tag and embossed with gold EP. I also embossed a couple of swirly flourishes cut on my cricut with some gold EP. When my mojo was missing the other week I cut loads of swirls, leaves etc out of white card on my cricut so when I need them I just have to colour them. I'm so pleased I did this as when I'm making a card, I'm usually too lazy to cut out little embellies so I'm ahead of the game now lol.

To finish the card off I added scraps of ribbon and lace, some red gems and a little poinsetta flower from my stash.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Pea Stampers: Swirls and flourishes (they also have a fab monthly candy too!!
Paper Jewels Ribbon and Flowers
Die cut Dreams Christmas: Poinsetta
Sentimental Sundays: Ribbon and Lace 
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: What are little girls made of?

Thanks for looking
