Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #68 -Holly Jolly Christmas (NO Red or Green)!!

Oh my goodness...I'm running super late today in getting my post up for "Fairy Fun Fridays" so I will make this one short...well short for me, lol!!

Before I get to my card today, I wanted to thank everyone who entered my Blog Candy and for all your wonderful comments!! I will be announcing the winner either Sunday or be sure to check back then to see if you were the lucky winner!!


We have one last Christmas challenge this week for you and our theme for the next 2 weeks is:

"Holly Jolly Christmas (NO Red or Green)"

Here's a little inspiration to get you started...

For my card this week I used a super fun sketch from "Pink Gem Challenges"

The image on my card this week is from Roberta's adorable "Holiday Gilly Set" and can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop HERE!

I used Glossy Accents over Gilly's glasses like usual and also added it to the bulbs on the tree to make them look shiny! Added a bit of Stickles as well!

All flowers are from "WOC" as well as the beautiful crystal stem! I just love this sentiment, so I used it again on another card, plus it suits the theme this week nicely! The sentiment is from one of my Christmas sets which can be found in the shop HERE! I also created another charm with bells and dangled them on a chain! The snowflakes are from decorative buttons, which I clipped the backs off.

Continued the layout inside and used more of that beautiful swirly paper!


SIZE: 6 X 6
STAMPS: Prairie Fairy Designs -"Holiday Gilly Set" and Sentiment is from one of my Christmas sets here
