I used My Craft Studio's Winter Wishes CD for the image and backing papers. The beauty of MCS is that whilst there are some pre designed image toppers on the disc there is also huge scope to create your own. I chose the basic background topper and then added the fairy of choice to it. I also incorporated the sentiment into the topper and there is a faux layering effect going on - not obvious in the photo but there is a mulberry paper effect in the centre of the white topper. The flowers can be added as required from the CD. I added some sparkle to her dress and to some of the flowers and foliage using stickles dry distress glitter in rock candy.
I used two backing papers from the CD and the smaller panel I used strips of washi tape with gold script on it, rather than ribbon round it so that the surface of the card is flat. I added to the faux layering effect using gold peel off borders and then added teh snowflakes cut from centura pearl card and glittered using the same glitter as on the topper.
Inside the card I used two pieces of the same backing paper as the small panel on the front minus the washi tape. I also printed the same plain topper onto the right hand page and used some extra flower imaged to make a frame round it.
I am entering this into the following challenges.
