A little bit of ice n snow

I've loved this image Winter Fairy Halla from Mo Manning for absolutely ages and I've finally got her - yay!!

I've coloured her in very pale pastel blues and baby blond hair.  Added to the ice/magic she's  blowing is some stampendous glitter and mica.  She's also go glitter on her wings but you can't see it in this photo.  Under her feet some snowtex (a recent discover that's absolutely fab!) and I've also added some glitter in here.

She's been cut out with a Spellbinders die, edges with blue ProMarker then distressed.
I decided to do another shaped card because I still had them out.  They are hard work though because I have to draw and cut everything by hand.  All the design papers are from First Edition and have been distressed.

Added extras are some blue organza spotted ribbon and a hand tied bow.  Some snowball ribbon and some flat pearl trim - all from the Ribbon Girl.  There's also two type of blue self adhesive gems.
I really must get on with making more Christmas cards - it's sneaking up on me!
