Winter Fairy Talva

I fancied making a fairy card, so chose this awesome Mo Manning fairy Winter Fairy Talva.  I love the icicles on her wings!  I've followed this week's sketch over on Sketch Saturday and to mirror the 3x3 background design, I used a Snowflake Mask by That Special Touch and spritzed with Lavender Fields Glimmer Mist.  
The snowflakes around the edge are from an Inkadinkadoo winter set and you might just be able to see the glitter I've added to the snowball - I hope her lips aren't frozen!!
The four corner snowflakes are cut with a Marianne Die and mirror almost exactly the shape of the flakes from the mask - I've also cut them from DCWV glittered paper, as is the Spellbinder frame around the image.
I think the sentiment is Personal Impressions and I know that it is punched out with a Stampin Up label punch.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Glimmer and Sparkle
Fab N Funky - no patterned paper
Flutterby Wednesdays - Sparkle (and a Fairy!)

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!!
