Christmas Fairies ...

Good morning everybody

A quick post from me today as my sister is arriving for the weekend, and as she is an early bird, she could easily be here before I am out of my PJ's!

At the  One Stop Craft Challenge  this week our theme is Christmas Fairies, and anybody who my post from a couple of days ago will recognise the image.  I decided this lovely lady also suited this challenge.

For this card I have used Bo Bunny paper again layered on to Bazzill card.  I have cut a clock from a Tim Holtz die, and added distress ink to it to darken it up, and layered the fairy over this.  The large snowflake and the bottom border are both Memory Box dies cut from silver holographic card, and as usual when photographed it picks up other tones.  The snowflake has a brad through it and I have also added silver mesh fabric - just peeping out behind the flower - and a Prima silk flower which I thought toned in with the browns in the DP and cardstock. but now I am not so sure.  The fairy was coloured with Copics and I have added Glamour Dust to the wings.

We are sponsored by Stitchy Stamps this week, and the prize is a $10 gift card for the winner.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
