Paper Garden Challenge!!

Paper Garden Holiday Cards 2015!!

Hey all, i hope all is well for you and yours. I've been crazy busy
making Christmas Cards and i'm still so far behind..ha ha
I  just don't understand how i make cards all year round and still have
trouble getting all the Christmas Cards done on time.

Let's show you the card i put together for
 Paper Gardens Challenge this yr.
You have a chance to vote this card as your favorite here:

This image may be familiar with you all as she is a character in my
Daughters newest book A Very Fairy Door. Soon to be released.
We can't wait to show you the final book with Fairy door..
It's a very proud moment for daughter is one extremely talented girl.
I guess i could take a bit of credit for that RIGHT?

Let's have a look!!

I colored this one with my trusty promarkers and added a
bucket load of wink of stella for the much needed glitter on this fairy.
Very simple embellishments as per my style. A couple die cut stars,
 and some burlap to add some texture.
The purple background paper is from Paper Garden and it shimmers
like crazy..LOVE it!! I really hope you like this sweetie and i hope you
can take a second from your day to throw a vote my way..but really
 if you see a card you like better by all means vote for that one..
And even one better get your card made and enter yourself.
.Best of luck to everyone!!!

Challenges i'm entering are:

Christmas Cards in full swing!!

Christmas Cards!!

How many do you have to send out this yr..i'm up to about 30 but i'm trying to cut that number down. How do you all have time to create so many. There never seems to be enough time in a day..
However i did get this one done and have a video tutorial if you would like to see how i colored her up..Real time so you get a real close and personal experience..if you can stand the boredom..ha ha
I think i nodded off once or twice while editing..i'm either wayyyy to tired or i have an issue with listening to myself..
Anyway, enough about me..lets get to my project!

Ok, this one was colored with promarkers all the way. I tried a new color combo for the hair and fussed a bit too much but finally got it looking passable. Added just a few elements to frame her and that's it. Sweet and simple, my kind of card. Youtube tutorial here:

I hope you all like, and i would like to enter into these challenges!
