Holly Fairy

I have spent the day in my craftroom making cards in between trying to find things.... I keep promising myself I will put everything away as I use it but that never seems to happen! It's a lost cause. Todays card is another sweet image from Pollycraft called Holly Fairy. She is colored with copics & her wings are glittered with diamond Stickles. This is my take on the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  The lush papers are Carta Bella, Christmas Holly (how appropriate) the holly leaves & berries are a Sissex die & the tag is Spellbinder, pearls & glittery button are Recollections. The ribbon was a steal of a deal....I went into the fabric store with my daughter last week & they had all of the Christmas ribbon on sale 75% off! Needless to say I bought a "few" yards. Hope you are all managing to stay warm. We ended up with 6" of snow the other day & the temperature has dropped to -13C. WINTER HAS ARRIVED!
