Fairy Merry Christmas...




Well it's Saturday and that means I get to share another Christmas card with you. I have to admit I love making Christmas cards all year long. This week over at the DCD Christmas blog we are sponsored by the amazing Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs so we all used one of her Christmas fairies. I really love this one, I've used her quite a few times, but I think this colour palette is my favourite. I went for a soft look and used Distress inks and soft papers. Unfortunately I have a lemon of a printer so the ink prints funny and turns blue as I try to add water to spread the colour. But I toughed it out. The flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid and stems I pulled from pre-done arrangements...lol. The sentiment I printed. Hope you like!
I am entering these challenges.... For Fun Challenges - Christmas, House of Gilli - Ribbon and Pearls, Make it Monday - Anything goes, Scrappy Frogs - Flowers and Lace, Pixie Dust Studio - Fluttering Wings.
