Teen Fairy Pia with lots of Sparkle and Embellishment

Season's Greetings to everyone.  Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  I think I enjoy the build up as much as the day itself.

My card for today again features the image Teen Fairy Pia from Mo Manning and can be found here

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

I have coloured the Card using ProMarker pens and shaded using FlexMarkers and covered the wings and skirt frill in glitter.  I have used Spellbinder dies to cut out the image and contrasting backing papers.  All papers are from my Stash.  I found some lovely die cut snowflakes with crystals in my stash and these have been added to the card.  I have die cut a snowflake swirl and decorated this with tiny  pearls.  Ribbon, lace, flowers and greeting panels are all from my stash.  I glittered the background paper to resemble frosting and it looks really seasonal.  I have not used traditional images or colours on the whole this year to make my Christmas Cards and have enjoyed making a series of cards mostly in pinks, purples and blues.  With the odd touch of red and green.

A closer slightly fuzzy view of the main image ( my camera).  with embellishment details.

Showing the inside of the card with further glitter highlights and matching die cut panels and snowflake swirl.  I have stamped a Lili of the Valley sentiment and there is a blank panel for recording of a greeting.

Thank you so much for reading this post,  I hope you like the card.  Sending warmest wishes to all.
