Fairy with Present for DT call for Lili's Little Fairies

Hello to everyone, I hope this finds you well.  I have been considering entering the Design Team call over at Lili's Little Fairies for the past couple of weeks and as this has been extended I thought - well why not have a go.  This is my card for the Challenge Black Magic and my submission for consideration for the Design Team Call.

I have used the image Fairy with present from Lili of the Valley and she is lovely.  I have coloured the image with Promarker Pens and added detail and shading with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Polychrome Pencils.    A round Spellbinder Cutting Die has been used to cut the image and I have used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to distress the edges and colour the illusion of sky.  Liquid Pearls and glitter detail have been added to make snow detail and to glitter the wings.

Other Materials used to make this card:
White card for base of 6" x 6" card.  Pink pearl card which has been embossed with snowflakes Papermania Embossing Folder and black paper for layers.  
Further Spellbinder Die to make mount for image.
Marianne Design Poinsettia Flower Dies to cut pink and black flowers which have been inked with distress die.  Pearls have been added to centre of flowers and there is lots of pearl detail on the card.
I have lovely sparkling leave embellishment from Chocolate Baroque and have used these to decorate the flowers.
 Star of Wonder Die from Memory Box which have been glittered and decorated with pearls.  Macarena Corner Die Cut detail from Memory Box and Cheery Lynn Mini Flourish 1 for pink swirl detail.
Black and white spotted ribbon and black lace detail has been used.

 A Christmas tag has been added to the front of the card and this has a Merry Christmas Greeting and is decorated with matching Marianne Designs Die Cut Poinsettia and ribbon.  This slides behind the main image and adds to the decoration.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Things that make you go Awww

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post.  Your input and support is much appreciated.

Sending warmest wishes to you all.
