Winter Fairies

Being the mid-month inspiration at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' I've made this card for the CHRISTMAS FAIRIES challenge. I've used an image by Sherri Baldy for my card.

My fairy is colored with Copics and I used Warm Glitter Ritz all over her wings. I used Stickles Star Dust for the snow falling and on the ground. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, the poinsettia die is by Spellbinders, the snowflake border is by Martha Stewart and the die around my image is a Sizzix Thinlits Die-Doily.

The sponsor this month at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is Funky Kits who are giving the winner 2 fabulous Gorjuss Girl stamps from Personal Impressions! The gals at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have posted some awesome cards to inspire you and there are some Christmas fairy stamps that have been used that I just have to have!!!  Thanks for stopping by and as of June 25, there are only 182 days until Christmas. Wouldn't this month be a GREAT month to start your Christmas or Holiday cards and make a CHRISTMAS FAIRY card?
