Winter Fairy

Hi and hope that your week has started well? I've had another busy day - paintbrush in hand once more. We have quite a big room - well, it's two rooms that were knocked into one big lounge. Now please don't think I'm a moaner (!) but 99% of the time I do like having a big lounge.....- until it comes to decorating! And I'm sure it magically expands as I'm doing it! It's partly my fault I suppose for being so independent (or bossy as my husband probably defines it) and insisting that I can do the decorating on my own - but I will be so glad when it's done! Hey ho.
The other thing is that I'm missing doing my crafting! I try to make a little time on most days to do some crafting of some sort, but I've either had no time or been too tired to start this last few days! But I'm determined that the decorating should all be finished by this weekend - and hopefully some normality can resume!
Anyway, today's card is one I made a week or so ago (before the other sort of papercrafting and colouring took over lol!)

I got this stamp of 'Winter Fairy Talva' from Mo's Digi pencil because I thought she was gorgeous! I've coloured her with promarkers and pencils - although I'm still not too happy with her hair! I must practice my 'curly hair' colouring!  I stuck to shades of blue, with lots of added glitter and Stickles. I also added Glossy Accents to the icicles on her wings - but unfortunately it's not really showing up

The backing papers were printed from the Artylicious 'Seasons Greetings' cd from Chocolate Baroque, with lightly sanded coredinations card for matting. The snowflakes were from mirri card with a Tonic punch and some added pearls from stash. The sentiment is from LOTV and the sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen.
I decided to make this into a 6" square gatefold

Hope you like my Winter Fairy! 
I'll be back soon - and promise not to bore you with more decorating reports! 
We'll put the earmuffs back on Tilly ready for Bonfire night tonight!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
Addicted to Stamps - things with wings
Corrosive Challenges - more than one fold
Pile it On Challenge - make it sparkle
Scrappers Delights - anything goes
