Ching-Chou Kuik - Holly Fairy

Today starts a new system for me at Sweet Pea Stamps.  All of the Design Team have been given a specific day to show you their creations.  I am teamed up with Susan and we will show you our creations on a Sunday.
For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Holly Fairy".  She was one of my first Sweet Pea Stamps rubber stamps and she is still one of my favourite Christmas images.  She is now available as a digital imagesingle rubber stamp and as a plate of 4 images (Sheet 21, Plate 60 - Holly Fairy comes with the images Poinsettia Fairy, Holly Night and Cherish Christmas).  

The image I have coloured in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and highlighted areas with a white gel pen.  I added Glossy Accents to the holly berries.  For the large piece of backing paper I made this myself with various Christmas stamps and edged with a green chalk ink pad. 
The other backing papers are from Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Traditions.  I have finished the card off with some Marianne Designs holly die-cuts, card candi, ribbon and a stamped sentiment.
