MPS Christmas

We love the 5th Wednesday of the month at For Fun Challenges, because it's our Christmas challenge, and sponsosored by the uber-inspirational Michelle Perkett!  This week our challenge winner receives the 4 images we have created with!

I used the Poinsettia Fairy .... I think she is delightful!

Ingredients: Red, White Cardstock; Stardust Glitter Pens;  Marvy LePlume Marker; Printed Grosgrain Ribbon; Red Rhinestones; Ice Stickles...

I left her dress neat, so to appear crisp and white.  I coloured the poinsettias and hair with glitter pens,  and her skin with marker. Ice Stickles trim her hem, neck, hand-warmer, and her wings.  She set aside to dry, while I trimmed red and white matt layers, and added the ribbon to fit the cardbase.  As the holly looked stark on the ribbon (printed white) I coloured the leaves, and added rhinestones for the holly berries.  I fixed together all the layers, and finished by adding red thinestones to the corners, and to the poinsettia centres on her wings and dress.... sparkle, sparkle!

This creation is also entered in the following fantastic challenges:
One Stitch At A Time #90 Seeing Red                Scrap-Creations - Christmas
Kaboodle Doodles #95 Bundle Up For Winter   Ooh La La! #94 Lots of Sparkle (12/12)

Do join us in our Christmas Challenge at For Fun Challenges this week.... we will look forward to seeing your creations! And thanks for peepin'!
