hApPy ChRiStMaS to all...!!!

Hello folks! First of all an apology for not being around, we have been consumed by Christmas preparations, and secondly HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all my wonderful crafty friends! I wish you the very best for this blessed time of year.
Just wanted to share this Enchanted forest fairy card with you. The main image and sentiment are from the Enchanted stamp plate. I stamped her directly onto Kraft card and painted her with watercolours. I cut her out with Nestabilities, inked the edges and drew faux stitches with a white gel pen. The scalloped layer is die cut from foam. I stamped the dark brown card with versamark ink and the small flower stamp from the Magical Day stamp plate and swirled perfect pearls powder over it. I punched the border using a Martha Stewart punch. I used my Cricut to create the bracket card shape. I added some ribbon and flowers that I had painted red with layered up with smaller punched daisies and topped off with a self adhesive pearl. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.
Ok... off to prep the veg for tomorrow. Have a good one!
Much love
Sandra xx
