Inspirational Card Sketches #45

Can you believe that it is December already?! Where has this year gone? Have you noticed the latest trendy Christmas colors? I noticed it at Michael's early on when the Christmas ornaments were being put out and those colors were the inspiration for my card. The colors of light purple and silver seem to be the thing this year and I do think it is actually quiet lovely and elegant together. For this card, I used this week's ICS #45 sketch. This is the Autumn Fairy digi from The Greeting Farm. I was sooo excited to get my hands on these fairies and when I finally did, I was intimidated by them. Especially after what others have done with these gorgeous fairies, but after a little fussing with what color to make her dress everything else just fell into place which doesn't happen very often. I colored this image with copics and put diamond stickles on the wings. The word and polka dot paper are from October Afternoon. On my card I made the smallest circle on the sketch my biggest element...the fairy. Please visit the rest of the ICS DT for some more fabulous inspiration on this week's sketch. Thank you for visiting me today and have a wonderful day.
