Sweet Christmas Fairy




Good Morning, everyone!It's Terrifically Thrilling Thursday at Shelly's Images! Are you ready for a new challenge!

This week's challenge is to use red and green on your project. Now, I know that makes most of you think Christmas, and if you want to make a Christmas project, that's great, but its not a necessity! You can make anything, as long as it has red and green in it. There are prizes to be had, so be sure you play along!

My card is done in reds and greens, using scraps from my stash. I'm using today's featured image, Christmas Fairy, from Shelly's Images. She is colored with Promarkers. I distressed the edges of the plaid paper with my Tonic distressing tool and then inked the edges with green ink. (I'm loving the distressing technique, lately!) I added a couple of sparkly flourishes to bling it up. I love the color of the bling, it goes beautifully with the card and I love the overall effect. This card has somewhat of a vintage feel to it, to me. (But then, maybe I'm crazy. I never have been good at the vintage effect) Either way, I'm happy with how it turned out.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
