Bugaboo Christmas card

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Shirley who is joining us as a new follower this week.

It's time for another challenge over at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and this time our sponsor is Bugaboo

and the challenge is to use fairies or angels. I used one of their cute images - 'Ava Mistletoe Fairy'.

I used a background stamp to make the paper for paper piecing her dress, and used alcohol markers for colouring her in before I embossed the panel with a canvas impression plate to add a little texture. Now I don't know about you, but I think she looks like she has been caught red handed doing something she shouldn't, so I found a sentiment that suits her in the 'Naughty or Nice' stamps from Cas-ual Fridays, and I embossed it in white onto a banner. I added Wink of Stella glitter to her wings which you can see better in this photo, 

and some glossy accents to the berries. Some patterned paper and card candy finished her off.

I'm going to enter this into the Keep it Simple challenge 'things with wings' 
The Crafting Cafe ' clean and simple'
and Always Something Creative 'bright colours'

Thanks for stopping by
