The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge this week is a sketch challenge, hosted by Leigh.

Leigh did not specify the dimensions on her blog, but other TCP design team members said it measured 4.5 x 7 inches.

I changed the proportions, since I wanted my card to be a standard size 5.5 x 4.25 inches.

Here is my card.

The white parts of the fairy's robe and her wings are shimmery, since I painted them with pearlescent paints. I put some shimmer on the holly berries in her hair too. The white layer is vellum, which I ran through an embossing folder. Brads are faux, and were punched from paper and glossed with Crystal Effects

Supplies used:

Stamps: Fairy Nick and holly images from "Fairy Christmas" by The Cat's Pajamas, sentiment from "Faux Ribbon by Papertrey. (The sentiments from the Fairy Christmas set were too large to fit in sentiment area.)
Paper: Neenah classic crest Solar white, Stampin Up: Certainly Celery, Real Red, Handsome Hunter, Vellum cardstock
Ink: Palette Noir, Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, Cold Stone Prismacolor marker, Radiant Pearls.
Other: Ribbon from Michaels, Crystal Effects
Tools: Cuttlebug, "Tapestry" embossing folder, Long Rectangle Nestabilities, 3/16" paper punch, slot paper punch
