CCAYR Mid month

So the slacker in me forgot to post my mid month Christmas Cards all Year Round on the 15th. 
Our challenge over there is Fairies with sparkle and I made this Fairy Christmas card using a stamp I won from Wags to Whiskers. 

It can be found HERE.

I stamped her out on Royal and Langnickel watercolor ink and colored her in with distress markers. I added Stickles to her wings and the stars. There are sequin stars coming off of her hands as well. I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn alphabet stamps and the sticker is from Hobby Lobby. The die cuts by Spellbinders {white} and Cricut {Burgundy}, patterned paper by Stampin Up {Old and not Christmas paper but it works}, ribbon by Prima and brads by American Crafts. 

Thanks so much for looking. Stop by Christmas Cards all Year Round each month for a new Christmas Card challenge. It really helps to get them done early and to have a variety of them is nice for giving them.
