Christmas Ornament Fairy

This is my second post today, please scroll down to see my DT card for Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Bright Christmas Colours' and we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.

For my card I have used 'Christmas Ornament Fairy' from The Stamping Boutique.  I am entering Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Christmas in July', Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.

Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: The Stamping Boutique 'Christmas Ornament Fairy' digi
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Large & Lacy Squares
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Purple mirri
Paper: Making Cards 'Party Girls' (magazine freebie)
Other: Star Dust Stickles, Papermania Transparent Shimmering Dots

I trimmed the gold/purple paper, layered it onto purple mirri and attached it to the card front.  I attached a square of spotty paper to purple mirri and attached it at an angle on the card. I resized the 'Christmas Ornament Fairy' and printed it onto white card.  I then die cut and embossed the image before colouring it with Promarkers.  This was then layered onto a purple mirri Lacy Square and attached to the card front.  I highlighted the fairy with Stickles and added transparent dots to the top and bottom corners of the card.
