Inky Impressions Challenge #26

We have challenge # 26 this week on the Inky Impressions Challenge blog and the theme is

Add Embossing (Dry or Heat) and Glitter or Flocking

So here is my card

I have used an Inky Impressions stamp called Fairy Lili, a versatile stamp as it can be used for a Xmas or non Xmas card. I've coloured her with promarkers and I have paper pieced her dress and shoes. Her wings have been done with star dust stickles. Here's a close up

The papers are My Mind's Eye and I have dry embossed the triangle corner and the decorative border with a spotty embossing folder and broke my Spellbinders plate in the process!!!!! The snowflakes started off as chipboard but I then used Stamping Up heat and stick powder and the glitter to cover them. Then I threaded some pearl beads through with thread and stuck the pearls onto the middles and randomly around the snowflakes.The decorative pin head is a pin with a pearl at the top and then I added the silver beads and a bow. Gems and pearl hearts are from my stash.

The new DT have made some really gorgeous projects, you need to see them!! You can find all of them and details of how to join in with the challenge on the Inky Impressions Challenge blog here.
