Bah! Humbug! Challenge #1 of 2011 --- Fairies and Holly

It is so good to see the ladies of Bah! Humbug! back after the holidays.  And they have started off the 2011 Christmas card-making with quite a challenge:  fairies and holly.  Of course we could choose to do either one, or both together.  Well, I'm up for the challenge and combined them. 

I actually made a set of four simple notecards using group of fairies from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil 2 and metallic holly paper from K & Co.  By the time I had the cards finished the daylight was gone so I had to use flash to take the photos.  I really don't like to do that with metallic paper, or any for that matter.  But, I had to make the deadline!  So, here are the cards:

Card One


 Card Two
 

 Card Three
 

 Card Four
 
 

All of the fairies are just adorable and can be used to celebrate any occasion.  They are colored with Copics, fussy cut, and flat mounted to the dp.  The card stock doesn't show up very well, but is a lovely light green to match the fairies outfits.

From the number of comments already on the Bah! Humbug! site, there are A LOT of us ready to get into the Christmas card-making again with Ann, Irene, Max and their guest designers.  Be sure to hop over and take a look at the DT's wonderful projects and, if you hurry, you can get a card in before the deadline!

Thanks for stopping by!
