I absolutely adore this Christmas Fairy "Holly" digi-image by the ever-so-talented Mo Manning of Digital Pencil Too. If you haven't already paid Mo a visit, please do - I'm sure you will love her wonderful designs. Just click on the link to take you there. I am entering this card into the Copics Colour Challenge - click here for details, and also the Danni's Dreams Flutter By Wednesday Challenge which you can find here. Danni's challenge card must have either a butterfly, a fairy, or an angel on it. The Copics Challenge requires the use of 3 Copics Colours - Pure Pink, Chrome Orange and Yellowish Green, or the closest shades you've got. I have used Tender Pink, Light Orange and Pea Green, with 2 or 3 others for shading and highlights.
The papers are from Papermania Joyeux Noel, and K&Co. Madeline. Anna Griffin ribbon, a stamp from Papermania and lots of Glamour Dust! This is also my first attempt at stitching onto card using my sewing machine - it's not perfect, but I rather like the effect!

This is so gorgeous Sylvia and the image is really beautiful. So cute that I must pay Mo a visit as the cute is not sugary which you may know I'm not a fan of!
Have a great weekend too. xx
PS: Might enter this myself as I'm in the middle of a card with a little girl photo with wings.
