Fanciful Fairy

It's all about fairies this week Digi Haven! This week's 'Fanciful Fairy' challenge is to use any FREE Fairy or Winged Cherub digital Image. The image can be a forever freebie, limited time freebie or freebie of the month as long as it’s free for the duration of this challenge.  Please be sure to link back to the original artist or website on your blog.  This Challenge ends on Thursday and the winners will be posted on Sunday.

Although I think fairies are beautiful, I had never used one before on a card. As a kid, I was never into the super girly stuff such as fairies, princesses, etc. I much prefer the cute, cartoon-like fairies such as Tinkerbell versus the more elegant, vintage/shabby fairies, simply because cute and fun is more my style than shabby. That's why I chose to use one of Elizabeth Dulemba's fairy images for this week's challenge:

I colored the fairy with my Prismacolor pencils and paired her up with some fun, winter-themed paper and added some sparkly snowflakes in the corners of the card. I accidentally printed her a bit too big and decided to make her the main attraction of the card rather than pairing her with a lot of embellishments. She's also propped up with some pop dots. :)

Stop by Digi Haven to see what other fanciful fairies the design team used on their projects for this week's challenge!
