Creative Inspiration Challenge GD card :-)

As you may know I won the Creative Inspiration Challenge last week and not only did I get to choose $20 of digi images from Maurie Manning at Mo's Digi Pencil Too thanks Mo x x x ,,, I also get to be their GD for a month !! :-) I have already made one mistake ,,, but we won't go in to that eh Nat !! :-)

This week they are asking for a card and a gift tag :-) The gift tag could be on the card (I think) ,, but I chose to make a little gift box and tag too ,,, I am sure I will use this set for someone :-) As you can see I chose to use one of Mo's fab images ,,, this one is called Christmas Fairy Holly ,,, isn't she beautiful !
Now make sure you're sitting comfortably cos this is a long post !! :-)

I hope this publishes !! I am in Malta Christmas shopping !!!! :-)

I coloured her with copics and decoupaged her onto plain card that was coloured with some gold pearlescent chalk. The edges were inked with a raw silk ink pad and sprinkled with sparkle EP ,, :-)

The papers are printed from a lovely digi download from Digiscraps3 ,, these are called A Golden Christmas from Bubblescrap Designs. I added stickles glitter to the papers ,,, lovely and sparkly IRL ! I also used 3D gloss to the christmas bauble and lace stickles to her petticoat :--) the flowers are prima and I sprayed them with pearl glimmer mist. was from my stash :-)The sentiment is a Funky Fairys Papercrafts Punchem ,,, again ! :-)

Are ya bored yet ,,, not much further ,,,, :-) The tag was made using green card that was embossed with a holly folder. the fairy was coloured as before ,,, this is the beauty of digi images ,, you can make them any size you like ! :-)

All the holly leaves were made using my new Martha Stewart punch and I used red gems for berries

Think that's about it ! :-) Thanks again Mo for the lovely images ,,, did you know she has a range of stamps produced by Stampavie now ! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one ,, and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see what the DT have made :-)
