Let's get ahead

Totally Gorjuss's and Paper Sundae's Challenge this week is "Christmas in August"

and

Winter Wonderland has the theme of of "All I want for Christmas"

and I really should get ahead on my Christmas Cards this year, so here is card number one!

I also used the sketch from Friday Sketchers




And here's a close up of the adorable pixie!


The image is from C.C. Designs, Swiss Pixies, "Heidi with Ornament"
I've coloured her with H20's and used glossy accents on her bauble.
Her wings are glittered with stickles.

The little red felt snowflake is from paper chase - they always do cute christmasy things that I then have to find a place for on my cards!


The sentiment is from lili of the valley, cut out with a circle punch and the edges inked with a red inkpad.

Paper is from my scraps stash - if I find the pad it came from, I'll update the post with it!
I've used my fiskars ribbon punch too and layered on some organza ribbon.


Hope you like it! xxx
