Festive Fairy

This cute little lady is a digi called "Winter Fairy" from Bugaboo that I won in a recent challenge. I've combined her with an assortment of goodies from my stash - the lower paper and border are from a "My Mind's Eye" Christmas pad that was free with Cardmaking and Papercraft - the date on the cover is 2011, and the snowflake vellum above it was a free paper in Making Cards magazine at about the same time.

The doyley and pearls are from Dovecraft's "Curiousity Corner" range and I've had them for a couple of years - this is a real clear-out card!

I coloured the image in with pencils - not a medium I use often but I happened to have exactly the shades I wanted in pencils but not markers, giving the fairy a "Santa jacket and hat" set, then added sparkle to the fur  trims on her clothes, the snow and her wings using crystal Stickles.


I'm sharing this with
