Winter Wonderland

Hello all!
Not sure that 'wonderland' is the term that many of you out there would use to describe the past week of weather - what with storms and flooding in parts of the UK and the freezing arctic weather which visited Canada and a huge chunk of the States but that's our theme for the new challenge over at The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT .
     So why not head into the warmth and get creating?  We have a great sponsor this month - Aurora Wings, designer Mitzi Sato-Wiuff and she has generously donated a $10 gift certificate for the winner as well as gifting us lucky DT members with an image each to use.  For my card this week, I used my image, Kawaii Fairy - I coloured her with Copics and there she sat while I racked my brains for an idea.  I knew I wanted to do something white to give a wintery feel and then I remembered a card I had seen on one of the blogs I follow  - here , always full of lovely ideas.  I loved the wreath card and wanted to do something similar so using my Cameo, I cut several leaf shapes and a few twiggy bits and assembled them into a circle on the card background, adding the fairy with some foam dots to raise her above the wreath.

                    I feel the need to point out the horrible splotchy bit on her forehead - I have no idea what happened there :(




Thanks for popping in today!

All those beautiful die cuts to create that wreath for the background are wonderful and the effect you tried to bring out with the icy look you did an awesome job. You picked the perfect colors and the fairy image is just perfect and she pops right out,
