"Fairy" Christmas

I wanted to really grasp at the non-traditional color palette and decided to choose orange! Now, what to color orange?  I think this little Irish fairy says "Happy Holidays" wonderfully! 
And the Magical Monday Challenge was the perfect inspiration!   Use something magical!  I think I will include some green "fairy dust" inside when I go to send this Chirstmas card!

I pulled a piece of scrap paper out of my old stash for the polka dot background. I ran the white cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Devine Swirl embossing folder, and colored the cute little image with Copics. Her wings are made extra special with Lime Green Stickles and clear coated. A dab of baby ribbon and pearls from Simon Says Stamps, and she's ready for the holidays!
I also entered the little cutie in the challenge over at Papertake Weekly, Kaboodle Doodles, Incy Wincy Designs,  Lexi's Creations, Stamptacular,and Pixie Dust Studios!
