Christmas Fairy

It's the first of the month and this is the first of three DT posts from me today.  Please pop back later and take a look at my first Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper DT card and my Paper Creator DT card.

This is my card for the the new challenge at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas project.

I have used the sweet image called Ava Christmas - Mistletoe Fairy kindly provided by our regular sponsor - Bugaboo.  I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers and added Wink of Stella glitter to the berries.  My papers are from the Simple Stories 'Cozy Christmas' collection and the Carta Bella 'so this is Christmas' collection, the sentiment is also from the Carta Bella collection, the pearls are from my stash.

I printed the image twice and fussy cut her so that I could pop her up and add a little dimension.

Bugaboo Stamps are our sponsor this challenge

They are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge 12 - Anything Goes
