The Sugar Plum Fairy

Happy Monday!
It's quite the chilly one here!  They keep saying it's supposed to snow and then changing their minds...I'm kind of ready to see that pretty white stuff flying through the air!

We're starting a new challenge today at Digi Makeover and it's Lots of Layers!  My cards have taken on a more simple style lately, but I always love a good pile on for a card once in awhile :)
 Ok so there aren't as many layers on here as what I thought I'd be adding.  But when I got it all together, it looked just fine without too much more.  I used the sweet image Sugar Plum Fairy (per my hubby's suggestion :) ) from Paper Makeup and colored her in with my pencils.  I added a bunch of glitter to her wings and around her dress and crown.

While digging through my overflowing drawer of embellishments, I found a pack of glittery snowflakes I had bought last year but never opened.  So I pulled them out and tested them on this card to see how it would look.  Once I found the right position, it was obvious it needed to be added :)  So I topped it with a bow.

I added some Opal White liquid pearls around the corners and along the sides of the center frame.  And finished the card off with 2 red pearls next to the image.

I still feel like it needs something else along the bottom, but can't really think of anything that would look good there...

Anyhow, be sure to pull out all your layers and join in the fun with us at Digi Makeover!!  Check out the rest of the DT's awesome creations as well!
