Christmas Fairy Needle

Hello and happy day to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.

My post for today features the so sweet image Fairy Needle by Mo Manning.  

I have used this image before and I  think this is one of my favourite Digital Stamps and I have chosen to make a Christmas card with this lovely image.

List of Materials Used to make this card:

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pens with glitter detail
Spellbinder die to cut image.
Background is an embossing folder from Crafter's Companion - Seasonal Music and it is lovely. Embossed on my Spellbinder.  My Spellbinder is gradually falling to pieces.  The handle has completly broken and my clever husband has made a replacement handle.  I will be asking Santa for an Ebosser for Christmas.
Card base is Centura Pearl Card.
  I purchased some white Mulberry Paper and have used Roses large and small quilling dies from Crafter's Companion to produce the beautiful roses.  These have been inked with Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass and dusted with glitter and are so twinkly and scrummy.

The image above was taken last evening in an attempt to show you all of the fabulous glitter and sparkle.
Other dies are Ivy and wonderful Snowflakes also from Crafter's Companion and these are  glittered.
Sentiment is computer generated and cut using a label from the Scalloped Tags Dies.
Other flowers and bling are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my project.

Sending hugs to all,
