Christmas Caroling Gilly -Fairy Fun Fridays Mid-Week Reminder!!


Happy Friday all!!
I have a little more inspiration for you all who are playing along with Fairy Fun Fridays "Pink and Distressed" challenge!! And a little reminder that you still have a week to get those cards in!!

Now onto my card...
I'm trying to get myself in the Christmasy mood and start getting these cards made, cause I'm one who procrastinates till the last minute and then have to get a ton of cards made in like a week...lol!!

So I chose to use an adorable "Caroling Gilly".


This image set is an older one of Roberta's released last year, but this is the first time I got a chance to use it and just couldn't pass up the chance...she is just too cute!! Plus when you purchase this image from Roberta's shop "Prairie Fairy Designs", you get the matching sentiment as a bonus!!


I promised myself I wasn't going to use this glittery paper anymore, cause it gets EVERYWHERE!! But as always I was trying to achieve more sparkle...lol!! Also the reason why I got a little carried away with the Iridescent Medium and literally painted all over the card! I have to keep reminding myself that "Less is MORE"...that will likely be my New Years resolution...lol!


I got these foamy glittery snowflake stickers from Micheal's last year and never got around to using them...not too sure if I like the way they look??

The inside...


Another view showing off just how shimmery that stuff makes the paper!!
