Santa´s Little Helper

Here we are half way through yet another week, how time flies when you have fun. Wednesday´s always bring us Flutter By Wednesday at Danni´s Dreams and this week is another open one so just create your card with a "Butterfly", "Fairy" or "Angel" and join in the fun.
I have used the wonderful sketch again over at Lili of the Valley designed by none other than my dearest daughter Marcea. Simon Says "All That Sparkles" and Winter Wonderland have an "Open Theme" and to throw the glitter about.

I have coloured my image with Copics, flowersoft to fur trims and glamour dust to her wings.
Papers are from the Christmas Wishes pack by DCWV and holographic card from stash. Snowflake is a shapeability and again the glamour dust came out.
Don´t forget to pop by my FBW teamies blogs for inspiration, Ann, Cassie, Chris, Christine, Danni ,Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kristie, Kim, Lelia, Michelle, Nancy, Stef, and Taylor.
