A crimbo card shhhhh!

I know I'm NOT MAKING ANY but but I had a swap to do, I was very late with (smacks hands) and it ended up as Christmas.... Had a mooch round blogger for inspirations and decided on a red/green/gold combo. Hey it matches my xmas tree, well it would if the kids would leave it alone for 5 minutes and stop pulling everything off!

The swap is called the Slam Dunk which is a combo of 3 other swaps we had on crafty cardmakers group (Christmas, look outside i.e. colours outside and transparent) I was thinking oooh autumn colours yum then realised it had to be xmas themed hmmmm..... Good old red and green come to the rescue!

I'm entering this into....

Stampin' for the Weekend - Christmas Time, Mistletoe & Wine
Dare U Digi - Red, Green & Neutral
The Pink Elephant - Fav Xmas combo
Cute Card Thursday - Swirly Girly

Image is a digital Swiss Pixies (Nora) coloured with Promarkers. I've used a copic spica glitter pen on the wings and added little iridescent gems as earrings. Background paper is HOTP mounted on gold card. Another piece of gold card the same size was stuck on the back for the writing :) Card is of course acetate stamped with white stazon with more iridescent gems added.
Thanks for looking x
