Christmas fairy for mid-month inspiration on CCAYR

It's already mid-month, so it's time for some inspiration from the team for the February challenge on Christmas cards all year round. Please click on the link to be inspired. And click here to get details and join in the challenge which has the theme of 'blue and white' with the optional addition of a heart.

The challenge is being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs, who kindly supplied the digital image, 'Little Honey's Tinkerbell', that I've used for my first card for mid-month inspiration. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and streaked some quickie glue on her wings and sprinkled some Art Institute glitter - and some on her hair as well.  I die cut with a Nellie Snellen die, brushing the edges with stormy sky distress ink. The background card is some old Kanban Christmas stock, with the addition of a piece of stitched ribbon and a padded white heart.
