Commissioned Christmas Eve Card

I was asked to make two cards for a lady who has two friends, one with a birthday on Christmas Eve and one on Christmas Day.  She asked for fairies for both, not fussy and well away from Christmas theme as possible.  I struggle sometimes with simple but gave it a go.  I used a My Craft Studio Walk in Wonderland fairy and did some simple matting and layering including using a smaller image, some torn paper, sentiment off the computer, fibres and some glittery stars.  I wasn't sure I'd got it right but when she saw the front and the personalised insert I was told I'd got 20 out of 10!!!

This card fits the following challenges:

Magical Monday - Wings
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes
A Crafty Little Place - Anything goes
Flutter by Wednesday - Open theme
CRAFT - Christmas birthday
4 Crafty Chicks - Birthdays.
