Christmas Fairy

Hi everyone, I'm back with another Christmas card. This one is using the sketch from catch the bug. I've used a Bugaboo digi stamp call Ava Mistletoe fairy, and instead of colouring with promarkers I thought I'd try out a free program which I saw recommended yesterday called I can't enter this one in the challenge though cos I've just realised it needed to be a spring card...oh well...I printed it on a laser printer, well I actually printed it on my inkjet too but there was no comparison! I've used colours which I don't very often use for Christmas cards (I do have a tendency to go for green and red). Here's my card...
 I've had the papers for years and they started of 12x12. I've made the A5 card blank from a sheet of bright red A4 card. I've used the same card to mat each of the sections. The blue part behind the image has been cut with a spellbinder and also embossed. I've used a sparkly peeloff, shaping the word Christmas to fit the oval. I've added some glamour dust to the wings and added various gems with my heat setter.
I would like to enter this for:-
Paper sundaes - let's get cute
Crafty Hazelnut - lots of layers
Wags n whiskers - anything goes
Moving along with the times - Merry Christmas

I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you again very soon.

Happy crafting
