Christmas Sprite

It's been weeks!  Holiday time seems to go by much quicker than regular time ;)

I wanted to play along with the Some Odd Girl challenge this month.  It's been ages and I was dying to break out an image and get to coloring.  I adore the Spunky Sprite digi image and thought she'd work great on a Christmas card.

The SOG challenge this month was to make your own background.  I tried a couple ideas I had floating in my head but wasn't having any luck.  I ended up finding a snowflake background stamp and embossing it with some glittery powder.  The image was colored with Copics.  The gifts were paper pieced and stacked to make her seat.

I traced her wings onto vellum and covered the vellum with a clear Wink of Stella pen.  The pen caused the vellum to curl a little adding some great sparkly dimension.

To finish off the card, I did a little decorating on the inside:
