Pixie Dust Studio #78

Hi all today the challenge at
is all about 'Let's Cool Down'
We would love to see you create a Christmas/Winter Themed card/project
Here is my GDT card using the beautiful image of the December Pixie
This is my first Christmas card of 2011 and I really enjoyed making it, I decided on a lovely cool blue colour theme using Bearlymine papers.  I coloured December Pixie with Copics I used silver metallic Crystal Lacquer on the fur trimmings of her hat and coat.  I found some lovely pleated material and made it into a circle to mount the image on.  I used TH Vintage Photo distressing ink then added some gold stickles around the circle, I added some wide blue stitched ribbon topped with Lace which I thought had an icicle effect, I found some wee pom poms and added them to the centre of the lace.  I punched out some blue snowflakes and silver stars then finally added some flowers. 
I would like to enter this into the challenge at Papertake Weekly which is Anything Goes.
Hugs to all see you later.

Wow, Lorraine, I love the way you've decorated this card, its gorgeous. The pointy shape of the lace, and the zigzags of the pleated material behind the image are quite like the edges of snowflakes, great idea to include them. CoB
