It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hi Friends,

Happy First Weekend of December!! yaaaaiiih I am so excited about Christmas because the count down has already started. "It's the most wonderful time of the year..."
I didn't have much time these days to start an advent calendar so today I'll show you another card/home decorations for these holidays. 

This card is paired with another one I did some weeks ago which you can see here on my blog. 

The difference is that this time I tried to combine more boy-like-colors as red and brown. I think it is a really good color combinations for these holidays too. The colors, feathers and the oldish deer tag create a vintage effect which I really enjoy creating. Do you see also the little red sleight bell between the Winter tickets?
Supplies: Fairy Winter stamp, Copics, Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart, Wow glitter, Feathers, Fabric Flowers and Felt flowers, Sleight bell, American crafts Ribbons, Distress Inks, other embellishments.

The little fairy is from  Mo Manning and I printed the cute image on X-Press It Paper and then colored with Copic markers. Some glitter was added to his wings and dress for a magical sparkle.
Copics used: R20, R22, R27, R29, E00, E11, E13, E15, E49, BG000, E43, C1, C3

In this photo you can appreciate the 3-D effect created by the feathers and all other embellishments.  I love the tiny bottles with fairy dust!! They are just perfect for this fairy theme project and I am sure that I will include them in many more projects.

 That's all for now. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for watching!
