hi guys
Really really late post for this, I'm sorry Teri :/

but its a cool challenge guys and you should come play along with  Delicious Doodles & Christmas in August!
this week i started making a card and from one moment to the next my day went crazy, i didn't get back to it till very late last night, i sat and cut it all out  having printed it earlier before the crazy began, layered it all out as i do before i stick it down and thought nope that's all wrong, so went off and redesigned printed it all off and cut again, layed it out and nooo i hated it ,lol it was 1am at this point and i just could not face it again so off to bed i go, just as i am dropping off to sleep an idea comes into my weary brain!
so up early today, see hubby off to work, sort the cats , tidy the house, run to the doctors then back to get the card done.

so it is completely different from the original holly fairy i was originally going to do, all girly and flowery with berries and glitter lol, but i have to admit i love how this one came out


the ribbon looks darker in the pic than it really is 

i started with silver holographic mirri, and layers a wonderful swirly snow fall paper , from My Craft Studio, which i had darkened a little in the graphics program to the size i wanted, the images i used are Emo Christmas & Skully Xmas Wreath and were printed to size , coloured and fussy cut,( those twigs on the wreath took an age lol).
i poked the girl through the centre of the wreath positioned her and using a little glue on the underside stuck her down. once dry i added sticky pads to the underside and placed on the card leaving space at the top for the ribbon. to finish i used glamour dust and gems to bling it up, after all you have to have a bit of bling at Christmas :)

so come on and have a go, you can to traditional or like me go alternative.

happy crafting xx
