Magical Christmas

I'm back as promised with my second post today which is my DT card for Winter Wonderland where Karen has challenged us to use a fairy or angel on our projects. I've been so busy this week with samples for Crafter's Companion that I just didn't have time to colour an image but that's where these LOTV die cuts are so useful. The backing paper is from a sample pack so I don't know the name of it but the colours go so perfectly with the image. The other paper is HOTP with added ribbon.  I'm trying to use up bits and pieces and the poinsettia was the last red one in a pack I won from Hooked on Craft last year. The holly was made with a Woodware punch, embossing tool for definition and card candi. The sentiment is from an old pack from The Range.
Challenges:
Ladybug Crafts Ink Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Evergreen
Hotshot Crafts Ribbon
Simon Says A Bit O' Green

I'll also be playing along with Lisa (Wishcraft's) Waste not Wednesday challenge.

I'm off the hairdressers this morning for a cut and highlights so have packed my book to read because that will be a long session. Selling at a craft fair again tomorrow so have some bits and pieces to finish off for that when I get home.
