One image, 2 cards

 
I'm still working on lots of Christmas cards and here are 2 very different cards using the same sweet Sugar Nellie fairy. For this first card I used the Sugar Bowl sketch where the option is CAS. Now you will know that I don't do CAS but as there was only one paper in this sketch the card is pretty clean and simple for me. The paper is appropriately Papermania Enchanted, flower is from Crafty Emmas, Crealie diecut swirls.

The second card is an 8" square card so lots of scope for embellies. I love the colours of these papers from Papermania and Wild Rose. The image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, as is the image above. Lots of glitter on her hat. I used an MS border punch and Marianne snowflake dies. I made a tag using a new stamp free with C&PC mag which arrived yesterday and a Nestie die. A couple of heart buttons and some jingle bell charms finish it off.
Challenges:
Charisma Anything Goes
Sketch and Stash Great sketch (papers, old & new, old charms, new sentiment stamp)
Die Cut Dreams So Charming
Whoopsi Daisy Fairy Magic
Simon Says Anything Goes
Marianne's Design Divas Dying to diecut
Crafty Ribbons Bingo (Glitter, punch/dies, lace)
