My last card for 2013 - Sugar Bowl "Glittery Fairy Challenge"

Good Afternoon Crafters, well before I go any further I want to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and to say that this will be my last card for 2013 as I want to take a break and perhaps recover some of my mojo which seems to be a little lacking in the last few weeks. And to be absolutely honest my hubby went to visit his daughters and grandchildren last weekend and came home with a rotten virus and I thought I had managed to avoid it but yesterday and today its hit really bad, my body aches and Im coughing like crazy so I just want to try and get rid of it before Christmas but I suspect knowing me it will hang around longer than I want.
Well todays card has been created using one of the cute Sugar Nellie Fairy stamps and I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I cut it out using nestabilitie dies and the mount is a fancy one of the one used on the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is a mauve card and the papers are from one of the Christmas Cds from Bearlymine Designs and I have used three of them to compliment the colouring of my image. I have also glittered the image on the wings and cuffs of the coat and her leggings.
To finish of I have used a diecut sentiment and a snowflake in the bottom left hand corner, in the center I have put a white pearl.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
