Christmas Tree Fairy

I told you I was in Christmas card mode and this is my 3rd Christmas card in as many days. I'll be making a start on next years cards at this rate lol. Today's card features another gorgeous image from the Prairie Fairy, she is called 'Christmas Tree Fairy' and she comes with some beautiful christmas tree ornaments too.

I've coloured her with promarkers and tria markers, she is a real joy to colour with that beautiful dress. I've added loads of glamour dust to her wings and to make the bauble pop i've triple embossed it with clear EP and added a sprinkle of holographic ep to the final layer.

I made the bp using white card stamped with Stampers Anonymous snowflake stamps, embossed with clear holographic ep. It has a lovely shimmer but its a bit camera shy lol
I've also added a layer of vellum embossed with a cuttlebug script folder, pale pink and white feathers and lots of flowers (mainly from Wild Orchid Crafts) and all liberally glamour dusted. There are also a few wired pearls, a few dew drops, some seam binding ribbon, a little Christmas tree charm, stickles (and probably a few dog hairs too lol) thrown in to the mix.
Here's another pic to catch the detail

The sentiment is also from the Prairie Fairy. I've used smooth white card from Crafty Emma's store  and its wonderful stuff for blending with promarkers, love it!! 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bling it on: Anything goes
Christmas Cards all year round: white, bling and flowers
Gingerloft: make it sparkle
I love promarkers: Christmas in July
Magical Monday: Add some texture
Papertake Weekly: Getting cute
Shopping our Stash: Technique turnback 
(adding sparkle to triple embossing is my old technique)

Thanks for calling by today. I'm hoping my new promarker nibs will be waiting for me when i get in from work. I do love promarkers but sometimes struggle with tiny details so i can't wait to have a go with them. Have a good day
