Another Winter Fairy

Hello to you all, I hope you're having a good start to the week.

Some of you may have seen the card that I posted on Friday using Mo Mannings' Winter Fairy Talva, well my card today is using the Winter Fairy Halla image that I bought at the same time. I used Promarkers and coloured this little darling with the same blues but rather than make another easel card I decided to go for a kraft base card. I've seen so many beautiful cards on your blogs using kraft and blue combo and I thought it was about time I should try it. I also used kraft card to matt the image and all the papers (not sure who they're by as they were in a pile of loose sheets). The die which is behind the image is Memory Box Swirly Tree but with a lot of it hidden it looks just like the fairy breath. Finally I added some tiny punched snowflakes, pearls and a sentiment from my stash. I must admit that I'm rather pleased with how it turned out.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Mo Manning DP2 challenge 'Krafty'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Sketchie free for all' (I used sketch no 45)
Allsorts challenge 'Kraft It'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'Blue + 1 other colour' (I used blue + brown)
Creative Craft challenges2 'Blue + Brown'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Christmas in July' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for coming to visit and I do hope you can leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
