Christmas Fairy Holly!

So I was a surfin' Mo's Digital Pencil and came across this most adorable image - Christmas Fairy Holly. Isn't she magical? Well I think so, from the ruffles on her dress to the little bells hanging from her sash and the snowglobe in her hands and the holly wings...well I HAD to have this!!! I loved colouring her up too, so much fun!!! This card is for Mo's Challenge Blog - Challenge #10 - Thanks, and also for the Copic Colour Challenge using the colours BV23, R59, YG63.
I've been feeling under the weather lately but that has given me a chance to whip up a few more Christmas cards. I keep coming across so many adorable images I can't resist, especially those digis, which are easy on the pocket book this time of year (anything to justify right? lol).

I printed this image on my laser printer (when I used an ink jet, I found I couldn't use stickles cause it made the ink run), & coloured her with my copics. I added Diamond Stickles to her slippers, the tulle of her dress, the bells and the holly in her hair. I also added them to the snow globe then covered it with Crystal Laqcuer. The DP is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and the solid cardstock is Stampin Up.
I think I'll be making a few more of these to send out!
Thanks for stopping by!
