Winter Wonderland Fairy in Blue

Hello.

I have a Christmas card featuring a Sugar Nellie fairy.  Surprise!...not a Magnolia image--I have very few of these...LOL.  Isn't she adorable?


This very cute image is from Funky Kits on-line store and she is of the Wish Upon A Star Sugar Nellie stamp.


I've colored her with my markers--Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias.  Added glitter to her wings, snow on the ground and all my white diecuts. 

I have made this into a twisted easel card.
