All Dressed Up Digital Stamps Christmas Tree Fairy Card & Heart's Quest Fantasy Challenge #6

Christmas card featuring All Dressed Up's Christmas Tree Fairy digi, colored with Luminance pencils, by Paperesse.

Today I'm guest designing for Heart's Quest Fantasy Challenge's #6 fairy theme; my contribution is this holiday card featuring the Christmas Tree Fairy digital stamp from All Dressed Up digi stamps. I originally downloaded this digi freebie with Simply Cards and Papercraft's issue 182, long, long ago and while the freebie is no longer available, I'm happy to report that Wendy has it for sale on her website.

Paper is from one of the EMF 333 Origami Christmas paper blocks (this one is Colorful Christmas) I picked up in Basel, Switzerland at the end of last year, and wrote about on this Christmas Critter Mountain card post. As the name implies, there are 333 pages in each block (guess I won't be running out any time soon). I like using origami paper for cards. The patterns are small so you see more of them on the card and the prices are usually cheaper. Even though the paper is lightweight, this isn't a problem for me as I most often layer patterned paper against solid color cardstock. Embellishments are some glittery star stickers.

I hope you'll come join the fun at Heart's Quest Fantasy Challenge this week!
