A Little Boy Fairy For Christmas

Well that's another weekend nearly over and as usual I haven't done half the jobs I planned although I did find the time to get a bit crafty.
I've made another christmas card, this tme for a little boy. The adorable image is Mo manning 'winter fairy Manty' which I coloured with Promarkers and Sakura glitter pen on the wings. I used Die'sire 'holiday holly' folder to emboss the background and cut the image with a QuicKutz nesting die. The snowflakes are Memory Box 'frostyville border' and 'crystal snowflake' - both of which I cut up a bit and covered with Stickles. The sentiment was hand written with a green glitzy gel pen. Apologies for the picture quality as the light was poor when I came to take the photo and it doesn't show the sparkle up at all.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Mo Manning DP2 challenge 'For the boys w/a Mo image'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Boys only' (my 2nd entry)
Whimsy Stamps challenge 'Masculine' (my 2nd entry)
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'Fairies and/or butterflies' (my 2nd entry)
A Creative Romance challenge 'Fairytale or winged creations'
