Holly fairy

Just a quick post to show the Christmas card I made today with this adorable Holly Fairy from Beccy Muir's new digi shop, Beccy's Place. Each image comes in an coloured version and an outlined version. For this card I used the pre-coloured version.

The lay-out is based on this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches:

Materials used:
Papers - Marianne Design
Holly Fairy Image - Beccy's Place
Holly image - Robyn's Fetish
Deckled edge oval - Spellbinder's nestability

I'd like to enter this card into the following sketches:
