Star of Wonder

Hiya Peeps,

I have a Christmas card for you today but have not used christmas paper.  I have used Lili of the Valley's "Star of Wonder". I had made a similar card on my blog a little while ago and a chap I work with wanted me to make a similar card again using the Lili of the valley image. I wasn't too sure about the paper choice at first but after I had coloured up the image and put it altogether I really liked the result. Hope you do too.



I have used my grey tones for shading, C5, C3, C1. 
I have shaded the image using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China.

Copics Used:- 
Hat/Skirt - B04, B02, B01, BOO
Top - E31, E25, E50
Gold Star - YR24, Y15, Y11
Skin - E00, E01, E11, E000
Tree - YG67, YG63, G20

Other Materials:-
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Stickles Stardust

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps - Christmas
Incy Wincy - Trees
Pollycraft - Christmas Fun
SirStampalot - blue/green

Fairies are always comes first. I happy to watch that not a single paper work is in dustbin. You used that outside and inside cut of stars in card.
