The Stamping Boutique treasures

This is one of Tracey's newest from The Stamping Boutique - The Fairies Frolic.  I used 3 challenges for this card - Splitcoaster's color challenge #300 - (ie: pick one of the previous color combinations, so I chose CC92 - red, blue and white) - as well as Copic Muskateers' December color challenge - surprise - red, blue and white - with the addition of a snowflake plus, Paper Playtime's challenge for yesterday - Snowflakes.

She was colored with Copics then I added some clear glitter gel to the little fairiy's wings then diamond Stickles to the big girl's wings and yellow stickles to the center of the "poinsietta's" (in this card, they are, anyway, lol).  Snowflake paper is digital from freedigitalscrapbook (dot) com; and border punched the white strip with an EK snowflake border punch before adding the ribbon & bow.

For this second card, I followed the Latte Lounge's Digital Paper Challenge #2.  JLJ Designs offered this free sample candy cane paper with a chance to win the paper pack. 

The image is from The Stamping Boutique again, colored with copics.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's All Year Cheer I, punched then threaded a ribbon through the slots, finishing with a few red rhinestones.

Getting too many Christmas cards piled up - will have to stash them for OWH next year.

Best Wishes!
