Fairy Merry Christmas!

I've had this digital image of a fairy christmas bauble for some time.  I got it from "Digital Doodling" some time last year.  It was free and I had to have it as soon as I saw it.  Not being a big stamper, though, I never used it before now.

When I saw sketch #164 for Mojo Monday, I knew this bauble was the perfect fit!  here is the sketch:

And here's my card:
Yes, I snuck in some more embossing!  I also love my Stampin' Up! stitch piercer for faux stitching.  I tried to make it look like the two patterened papers were stitched together.  Here's a closer look at the fairy bauble, which I coloured with Copics.  I also put frosted lace stickles in the wings.

This was my second attempt at using this bauble, actually.  The first bauble I printed was too big for the sketch.  Here's what I did with that one:
I have this stack of holiday papers by Die Cuts with a View.  Some of the papers are very vintage looking, which is just not me.  I have to think hard on ways to use them.  This one seemed to fit the image perfectly - plus the bauble blocked out JUST enough words to leave me with "magical" and "merry".  PERFECT!

Because this fairy bauble is bigger, I was able to do a little more shading wtih my copics on this one.
Hope you enjoyed these two fairy merry Christmas cards!
