Purple winter fairy

I just managed to get these Christmas cards finished! I stuck to the same layout as this card HERE as I was having a really hard time with no mojo and thought a similar card is better than no card at all!

I used the gorgeous Wee Winter Fairy again and of course it had to be the colour purple lol. Definitely a contemporary Christmas card!

I coloured her with a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkrs (list at bottom if anyone is interested) and I slathered lots and lots of glamour dust on her fur trim and her ear muffs.

I also went round the sentiment with Glamour Dust as I thought it looked so much nicer than having just a plain purple border. I actually did this with all of the sentiments for my Christmas cards - I swear there was glitter EVERYWHERE!! He he lol.

What I used:
  • 6 by 6 white card blank
  • Wee Winter Fairy digi stamp
  • Lavendar Pink Petticoat bloack colour and Sprinkled with twinkles
  • Promarkers and Flexmarkers
  • Crystal Glamour Dust
  • WOC roses and sweetheart blossoms
  • TRG purple dew drops
Promarkers and Flexmarker colours used:
Blush, pastel pink, cool grey 4, FM soft mauve, orchid, meadow green, poppy and pastel beige.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I will be back with some more Christmas cards soon!
Hope you are all well :)
