2 Sisters Challenge ~ Christmas

This week at 2 Sisters we are challenging you to create a Christmas card/project. We are being sponsored this week by The Stamping Boutique. Tracey gave us this adorable image called The Fairies Frolic to use on our cards. Sorry about the quality of my photo. It didn't look so blurry when I took it. I made this card for my 7 year old daughter for Christmas. Pink is her favorite color. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added crystal stickles to it and pink rhinestones to the centers of the flowers. I back the image in pink and then white. I embossed the strip of white cardstock behind the image using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). I backed all the pink cardstock in white and added crystal stickles to the white. I added a strip of white ribbon and added crystal stickles to the edges of the ribbon. I punched the sentiment using a 1 3/8 inch circle punch and backed it in pink and white and added crystal stickles to the white. I added 3 pink pearls to the bottom of the sentiment and 3 to the upper right corner.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
