Bah Humbug Challenge 1

Well the good people at Bah Humbug are back again for another year of Christmas challenges and week one theme is fairies and/or holly so plenty of scope. I've incorporated both into this card by using a stamp set from Polkadoodles for the fairy, coloured with pencils; the wings were stamped onto vellum and embossed in white; background paper from my stash; holly leaves were printed and cut out (they were lying on my desk from last year but from memory were from a Polkadoodles CD).  The message was done on the computer and punched with SU punches.  I so enjoyed these challenges last year and ended the year with such a good pile of hand crafted cards that I just have to do it all again this year - thanks ladies. There is an added bonus this week with a lovely prize on offer so good luck everyone.


  1. Wow this is brilliant - I love the way you have done the wings of vellum - a great idea.
