Snowflake fairy

   This week the challenge at Crafting From the Heart  is being sponsored by 


   I have used their digi called Snowflake fairy.


   After colouring the digi using Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens I cut it out using a Tattered Lace decorative rectangle die and matted it onto black card. I printed a sky background onto pearlescent paper and wrapped a satin ribbon round it after which I matted and layered it onto mirri card and white card. The snowflakes were cut from odd scrapes of mirri card using various dies. The sentiment was created from black peel offs.
