A Fairy Doodles Christmas

Good Morning all! Hasn't the weather just been great last weekend? We had some great days and went for a little bike ride on Sunday. It was great and lot's of people were about with dogs and kids.

It's been a bit quiet at my end this last week, I didn't really have that much time and inspiration to craft. But eventually I started again and made this Christmas card:

Materials used:
* Basic Grey Jovial Backing paper
* Buzzcraft Fairy Doodle decoupage sheet
* Kars ribbon
* Gems and Merry Christmas stamp from my stash
* Stickles around the fairy image

I am pretty happy with this card, a very satisfying feeling to be able to use up some of my bits and bobs that were lying about on the crafty table!

Submitted to:
* Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge (Ribbon and Gems)
* Allsorts (Anything but a square)
* Christmas Card Challenge (Bows)
* Crafty Sentiments (Glitter it up)
* Papertake Weekly (Anything Goes)
* The Paper Shelter (Anything Goes)
* Winter Wonderland (Photo inspiration, I've used the colour scheme and the baubles)
Thanks for having a look!

Enjoy your week
