"Mistletoe" Fairy

     This is the second of today's posts and features another card for the week long Christmas in July challenges at Catch the Bug.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and I've had a fun debate with myself about whether this is a Holly Fairy or a Mistletoe Fairy.  I insist that's holly she's holding but the image title in the store is "Mistletoe Fairy" so I've colored the berries the creamy white of mistletoe berries rather than the red of holly.

     I don't really care which she is - she's so adorable!

Today's theme at Catch the Bug is a sketch.

     I used ProMarkers to color the image, the cut her with a stitched die from Die-namics.  The red frame is cut with another die from that same set.  Both of the patterned papers are from the scrap pile in my Christmas stash.  I printed the sentiment, hand-cut it, and matted it with a scrap of red CS shaped like an arrow.


     Be sure to check out my first post of the day by scrolling down to the next post.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Firstly, I love your new blog banner! Too cute! I agree, I think she's holding holly, but either way, she is adorable indeed. Your papers are lovely and I like the 'snowy' look of the embossed base card. A lovely Christmas card! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Digistamps 4 Joy!

Haha - love your new banner too! And I also agree that she is definitely a Holly Fairy - Mistletoe has completely different leaves. Maybe it is fancy dress? I do love how you have coloured her to match the title though :) Great card,

Thanks for playing along with us at Aud Sentiments,

Great card and such a cute image! Even Jodie thinks she should be named holly I see :) But I'm almsot sur ethe berries on holly are cream at first and then turn red - also, there are varieties which DO have cream berries :) Love your new header too!
