Winter Fae - Happy Birthday

Good morning to you all and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Good luck with any new year resolutions you may have made.  I have to admit I don't do that anymore as I always break them sometime during Jan - LOL.

I shall be spending a lovely relaxing day with my hubby Rob, my dog Enya and my mom Sheila.  Hope you are having a lovely 1st January 2017.

We have a super new 'ATG' challenge starting at Crafty Girls Creations.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

The digi stamp I have used is called 'Winter Fae'.

After printing out onto Cope Express It card I coloured 'Fae' in using my copic markers as follows: -

Face = E0000 | E00 | E01 | E04
Coat = BG01 | BG05 | BG09
Hair = W3 | W5 | W7

I also added some glitter to the fur on 'Faes' hat and coat.

I cut a piece of 6x6 white card which I stencilled using Decadent Teal Colour Cloud (Phil Martin), and a stencil called Trellis from Imagination Crafts.

I then die cut a round frame in teal foundation card using Sue Wilson's double pierced circle dies which I attached to my stencilled card using foam tape to add depth.

Some matting and layering with teal and white card I then affixed my stencil/frame topper.  

I die cut 'Fae' using a spellbinders die and also cut a faux mat in teal.

I die cut two flags in teal and white using stitched flags die from Sue Wilson and stamped my sentiment and embossed it using Decadent Teal Embossing Powder (Phil Martin).

I affixed my flags and topper again using foam tape for depth and then finished my card off using Teal Cosmic Shimmer UPVA pearl drops.

Take care.
