lacy sunshine @ christmas

For Through the purple haze Challenge

This weeks
  theme was Bingo using Lacy sunshine images

For the bingo element , we had to choose three items in a row, 
I choose bling (glitter) , die cuts and an stamped image.

My image was a of Lacy sunshine sat on a cup cake
At first  I wasn't sure what colours to use,  and so many of us crafters
start to make Christmas cards this time of year,
 so I decided to turn it into a Christmas card.  

I started off colouring in the image
So the I searched through my pro-markers to find some
red and greens for the dress and tights.
next I looked for  some browns
for the cupcake wrapper
and a yellow shade for her hair.
To bling it up and added some glitter on the fairy's wings
 and the cupcake topping.

For the poinsettia, I used a tonic die set (that included the card) ,
I shaped each leaf and glued together using pinflair glue

I then took a sheet of A4 white card and  embossed through
my ebosser using my holiday holly embossing folder
I then folded it in half to make the card base.

The image needed a mat to mount it on the card base,
so to compliment the green used on the image,
 I die cut a mat and a sentiment from dark green card
    Well that's one Christmas card done.... .
Thanks for taking the time to read please come back again,
and see what new challenges /  creations I have made
