Christmas is still in July .........

Four challenges in one today for me......and they are all in the theme of Christmas.......

Bah Humbug want to see some 'Lace' on our creations, Winter Wonderland want to see 'Fairies or Angels' and both Crafty Catz and Craft Creations have the theme of 'Christmas in July' .........phew i think that's it lol

So i have made a gorgeous card with a 'Little Fairy Angel' from Lili of the Valley and i have coloured her in using Watercolour pencils in Christmas colours of green and red. Behind her is some gorgeous lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, i did toy with the idea of ink distressing it but i think its looks more striking as it is so white.....the BG papers are gorgeous linen papers from
 Papermania's Signature range 'A Christmas Carol' they are stunning, plus gorgeous poinsettia flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, behind them is a glittered snowflake and a few red & gold candi finsh it off.

'Seasons Greetings'
