Hello. Happy Monday! It's the second Monday of the month, so that means it's a brand new challenge at Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge. You can probably guess that our theme for this month of December is...Christmas. It's definitely coming!!!
So, here's my DT card...
I hope you will join us in our challenge. Hop over to the Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge Blog for more details on the challenge and prize. And for more inspirations, have a look a the fabulous cards of my DT teammates.
This winter fairy--isn't she adorable?--is called Holly. She is from Whimsy Stamps, designed by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps.
She is coloured with markers, Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias. I've added glitter to her wing and all the snow and snowflakes on this card--and all over my craft room too...LOL. I've added some liquid appliqué to the diecut branches.
