A Winter Fairy

I'm running a bit late today so straight on with my card. I've finally used a fabulous digi I've had for a while now called 'Winter Fairy Talva' from Mo Manning. I've seen her coloured beautifully by so many talented crafters and was a bit nervous about putting Promarker to card. I decided to keep to blues just to make things easier and make an easel card firstly because it tends to take your eyes away from any poor colouring and secondly because I love the shape of these QuicKutz nesting dies.
The background paper is from Marianne Designs and the dies are Marianne Creatables LR0185 snowflake, LR0111 flower, LR0154 tag (hidden behind the image) and Memory Box 'Elegant Scrollwork'. The ribbon, gems, pearls, bells, snowflake and silver peel-offs are all from my stash. I added Stickles to the snowball but it doesn't show up to well in the photo.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Christmas in July'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Christmas in July'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'Easel Does It'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Ding Dong Merrily On High'
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite Fancy Fold & Why'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Colours - Blue & White' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Die-ing For A Punch' (my 3rd entry)
Jingle Belles challenge 'Sleigh Bells Ring' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a nice weekend.
