Fairies or Angels at the Winter Wonderland Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the beginning of the next challenge at the

But before I move on I just have to wish my dearest, beloved husband a
Happy Birthday
he is spending the day fishing and I do hope he catches loads, as he deserves a fabulous day.

Yesterday was a bit weird, a plague of flying ants covered the whole of Grimsby/Cleethorpes and poor Star had to come in, otherwise she would have laid on them, Mike could not cut the grass or paint the fence.  Our drive way at home was moving there were that many of them, at work, when we left the office we just got covered in them, I do hope that they fly away tomorrow.

Anyway back to today and the new challenge at 

Team Kate is in the chair this week, with the very talented Sally setting the theme of

Fairies or Angel's 
as your main image

We are sponsored by the fabulous Teri of Delicious Doodles

I decided to go with the Fairies side of the theme and have not used this image for sometime, I also have not paper pieced for a while either so with that said here is what I created for my Design Team Inspiration Piece.
An easel card with a gold mirror card base layer and compliment.  I used some Papermania Silent Night papers and the MS holly punch.  The base die shape is one of my new Go Kreate dies, with a Papermania sentiment.  The ribbon has been wrapped around and twirled under the new die.  I have added little gold snowflakes adding burgundy gems to the centres.  
I have paper pieced the present and her little suit, using liquid appliqué for her fluffy bits and an actual ribbon around the present a pull type ribbon creating the depth from the card and glitter on her wings. A little different for me but I do like a change now and then.  Copics have been used for the rest of the colouring.

Now don't forget to hop on over to the challenge blog to see all my other teamies great inspirational pieces as well as our Designer in the Spotlight's work.

I would like to thank ALL of my wonderful followers who have taken the time to leave such fabulous comments through out the time my 200 follower candy has been running, and thank you all for entering the candy draw, I am amazed that 200 people have entered.  Today being the draw date, so you have a few more hours to enter your names in the pot if you have not done so already, click here to jump directly to it.

Maybe on the next candy I might be able to reach 300 entrants, who knows :)

Beautiful card! The subtle colours are lovely, and I love the 3D bow on the image!

I hope the horrible flying ants have gone. I had them all over my kitchen once when my rather posh cousin's family came for dinner. So embarrassing, luckily they saw the funny side!! We had a picnic in the garden instead! But I still don't like ants!!

luv, Mags x.
