Holly Wreath Fairy - Crafts and me - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Winter Wonderland, where our theme 'Non-traditional Christmas colours was chosen by Christine.  I always love this theme because we get so many colour options to view. I have used a fabulous image by Hannah Lynn which is available from Teresa's shop at Craft's and me. It can be found here.

And here she is. Not my usual gallery of photos today as my camera did a nose dive and I couldn't get it to work after taking a couple of pictures of this image.

I fussy cut her and then created the background using matt silver mirror board, which I embossed with a darice snowflake folder. I also cut two of the decorative edges for the  concertina cards. (Shame I hadn't waited another day as I got the snowflake one on Tuesday.
I added lots of gems and pearls for extra bling Then added Flower soft to her furs and glitter to her wings and the stars in the wreath. Ribbon, dazzler, and charms from my stash.

A close up of the image. Doesn't she have amazing eyes??
She is coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.  It's great how the ultra fine nibs allow colouring of tiny spaces.

So what about getting started on your Chyristmas cards and join us in our challenge

The lovely Teresa at Crafts and Me has a voucher for £8 to spend in store for the lucky winner

I am entering the following challenges :-
