Holly Fairy

Hi everyone, today's card is for three christmas challenges. I'm hoping to join in with these on a regular basis so that I don't have the normal mad rush to get cards made at the end of the year.

I'm entering this adorable fairy into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug where the theme is 'Holly and Fairies'
ABC Xmas which this week is 'A for Anything'
Winter Wonderland and their theme is 'Let's go Dotty'

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning's Holly Fairy
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Hot off the Press
* Everything else from my stash

I'm trying to put less embellishments on the christmas cards due to the postage costs. My cards always seem to have to go as 'large mail' so clean and simple is definitely going to be the order of the day for this year!

Gorgeous Hunni. I know what you mean, all my cards seem bulky and don't even fit in the envelopes properly.

I nearly said in my comment on yesterdays card that my other favourite Mo image is holly fairy and here she is.
Gorgeous as always, Chrissie

It may be clean and simple Chrissie but you still manage to make it look luxurious.
Lovely image.

I know what you mean about the postage costs. It's surprising how little you can add to a card before it won't go through the 5mm slot. I think your fairy is perfect for the Bah Humbug challenge - almost as if she was made for it especially - and beautifuly coloured too.
