Christmas Fairy

Well here I am back with another card for the Cheery Lynn Design challenge. This weeks theme is "Christmas in July". It is always fun to do Christmas cards no matter what time of the year.  I always liked this One Free Wish die and hadn't used it yet so thought I would use it for this Christmas card.  I think she makes a beautiful Christmas fairy. The red background is velvet paper and then I layered the Square Scalloped Lg Stacker Nesting on top of it after adding a touch of gold to the edges. The next layer is the Doily Stacker Circles. I cut the fairy out and then again a second time in red velvet and fussy cut out the dress and added a gold belt and then placed it on top of the first cut out. I popped up the One Free Wish to give it some dimension. A touch of gold was added to her wings and around the moon. I also added glitter but it isn't showing up very good. The poinsettia was  created using the Rose Leaf Strip. The leaves behind the poinsettia are also from the Rose Leaf Strip. I tucked in pieces of the Holly Lace Flourish behind the poinsettia. A few red crystals were added to some of the holly leaves and some gold beads to the center of the poinsettia. The beautiful Holly Corner is perfect on the bottom right corner. And the Make A Wish sentiment in the red velvet finishes it off nicely.  Well I hope this all looks good as it is a bit out of the box using the One Free Wish but is nice to used our dies in different ways. Hope I have inspired you and that you will all get into the spirit of Christmas and join the challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store credit. Look for us on the Inspirational Blog this week as we are moving the challenges to that blog so come on over there and join the fun.
