Poinsetta Fairy

Another of Teri's Delicious Doodles.... and another Christmas card done. This time using Poinsetta Fairy. I was following a sketch - from where I can't remember off hand. Oh well.
Coloured mostly in promarkers with just a touch of gel pen and water colour paint here and there. I decoupaged the poinsetta border. I added an extra touch to one wing. Mirroring the scroll work of the image onto the dark bottle green card matting layer and then attaching that to some sage green card stock. Using the same sage green wrapped a ribbon bow round and stuck that onto the base adding peeloff borders as I went. The image layer was then stuck on using foam padded tape. A couple of homemade pins and some dewdrops and done apart from the sentiment - which I always leave until I decide who gets the card.

This is another entry into The Crafty Purple Frogs first challenge for "Anything Goes"
