Poinsettia Fairy

Good morning all.  How are you all today?  Well December is here, how's the Christmas shopping going?  I made a good inroad whilst I was away last week.  Couple more bits and hubby to sort out and I will be done.  He is the most difficult, honestly, I never know what to buy him and getting it in the house is a nightmare given he is retired and gets to the door first!

1st of the month means a new challenge starting at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Challenge No 10 is Anything Goes

Our sponsors are: -

For my card this month I chose an image from Ikes World called Poinsettia Fairy.

After printing her out I coloured her in using a mixture of copic sketch markers for the skin and Tim Holtz markers for the flower garland and hair.

I have used white base card 21cm by 21cm in size and used Creative Expressions Noble Collection Double Pierced Squares Set B Dies for matting and layering.  My final layer I have used pearlescent card and a poinsettia embossing folder.  

I scanned my image into my BSC and put an oval around it to cut it out.  I then designed the frame and cut that out in pearlescent card too.

My poinsettia flowers are dies from Tattered Lace as are the ivy die and the branch die.

I think she is a lovely image and to be honest although I have chosen Christmas colours she could be used for any occasion as the flowers could be coloured in different colours and would become lillies or clematis.

To see more samples from the rest of our design team and to enter your own creation into our challenge please follow the link HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon.

Take care.
