Whispy a Chistmas Fairy

Hello again to everyone.   I hope this finds you well today.  This is my second posting for today. Although actually I scheduled my last post yesterday evening.  Today is freezing here and we may be facing our first snow of the season on Saturday.  This is unusual for us in the South of the UK so early in the year. 

I have really enjoyed making this card.  It features one of my all time favourite images Whispy by Krista Smith for Saturated Canary.   She is so gorgeous and a delight to colour.

List of Materials used to make this card:
Centura Pearl card cut with Spellbinder Dies to make shaped card base approx 5.5" x 5.5".
Designer papers are by First Edition and from the Stocking Fillers Pack.
Wonderful Whimsy image coloured using various shades of pink with my trusty Promarker Pens and detailed with my pencil stock.
The image is mounted on another Spellbinder die cut.
Other die cuts are wreath and seed head which are from Memory Box.
Pink crush ribbon, pearls, doily and Prima flowers are all from my stash.

I would like to enter this lovely little lady in the following Challenges:

A side view of this card showing inside with designer papers, these are all glittered and with matching smaller die cut for recording a greeting.

I am so honoured that this card has been chosen as a favourite of the week on Splitcoast Stampers for week ending 4th November 2012:

Thank you so much for reading this post and looking at my card.  

Sending Hugs to all, especially those of you who are feeling a bit poorly today.

You've colored the image beautifully, I think her hair looks so natural! You've arranged the ribbon in such a decorative way, and the doily and lace details add to the feminine feel of this card!

what catches my eye on this card is the color combination. Truly outstanding. The image is adorable, but your coloring is what makes it a truly beautiful card. I like the embellishments you used and the shape of this card a lot. Really really nice card and I'm going to remember how pretty this is as inspiration. --Gail
