Crystal Flakes


Time for another Christmas card using one of my very fave Sugar Nellie fairies, Crystal Flakes. I popped into the range for some 6x6 Core'dinations and just couldn't resist these new First Edition papers, Silent Night. Such lovely soft colours. The image has been coloured with Copics and I added loads of stickles and used the Viva Decor pearl pen from My Crafty Heart. I have also used my favourite Spellbinders Nestie and added some Wild Orchid roses, silver bows I have had for years and a pretty snowflake charm.
