Anyway, to add a little Christmas magic sparkle to your day the theme for this month's challenge at The Sugar Bowl is FAIRIES. You can create anything you like but it MUST include a Sugar Nellie rubber or digi stamp both of which are available from Funkykits. There's a great prize on offer as always.
So to get you in the mood here's my Fairy DT card for you - it's quite a simple card really. I matted Xmas paper onto my 5 x 5 kraft card base and die cut a doily in pearlised card. Then I printed my little Sugar Nellie Fairy onto Neenah card (isn't she gorgeous) and die cut it into a circle. I coloured around the edge of the circle with pan pastels and stamped snowflakes randomly around the image with some distressing ink. I coloured my fairy image with copics and matted it onto a green scallop circle. To finish I added a die cut poinsettia and used a touch of glitter and a pearl pen to add a little dimension.
Here's everything I used:

It's open to everyone, and the theme is 'FAIRIES' so come on give it a go but remember to include a SUGAR NELLIE STAMP (either rubber or digi) otherwise it will be removed...sorry!.
