Green Christmas

Green Christmas - I am getting an early start on my Christmas cards this year by doing the year round Christmas challenges. Lots of challenges are doing green in honor of St Patrick's day, so I made my Christmas card monochromatic in green. The image is Michelle Perkett's Holly Fairy. I have used her lots of times, but I never tire of using her. I think she could be an early spring image too. The sentiments on her are good year round.

My DP is Me And My Big Ideas, Noel pad.
I colored Holly with Copics and then I loaded her up with goodies. I used a fine glitter for the snow on the branches, white flower soft for the fur on her gown and Stickles on the center of the flowers that tie her hair. I also used 6 olive colored gemstones on this card

I hand made the flowers. I cut them with my Cricut and hand formed them. I added a Lacey flower to the back and but some fine glitter on the petals. #13 brads, gemstones, dew drops #8 things that fly (bird and fairy) #21 monochromatic green
