A Fairy Merry Christmas card

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is "Anything Goes with an Optional Christmas Twist".  My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Laine, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any color medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our April sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner four digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us using the palette below for your chance to win!

I've opted to do the twist, so here's my card with ching chou kuik's Holly Fairy.

Holly Fairy was resized in PhotoElements, printed out onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. Chalk pencil was used to add shading to her face and blush to her cheeks. White gel pen was used to accent the shiny bits on the holly berries.

The patterned paper, from an old My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad, was layered according to Sketch 297 from Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge blog. All edges were sponged with Bundled Sage Distress ink. My Celtic Band die (Cherry Lynn Designs) was used to die-cut red cardstock.

Here's the sketch so you can see how I did with it, though you'll note that I flipped it 90° to work with Holly Fairy.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting with an Attitude: Freestyle/Fantasy
Die Cuttin' Divas Challenges: Garden Month
The Christmas Challenge #57: Use a Digi
