Day 8 of 12 Days, and a New DICC

Hello! It's the 15th, so that means it's time for a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, plus it's Day 8 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. I came up with the itinerary this time around and we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear. Remember  if you decide to play, you must use at least 3 things off of the itinerary.
1. Winter Holiday
2. Silver & Gold
3. Magical Creatures
4. Glitter
5. 3 or more Patterned Papers
6. Handmade Embellishment
7. Make it a Gift
8. Chalk
9. Bells
10. Non-Craft Item
Here's what I came up with.

I used numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 for my card. I love all things fairy, so I knew I had to work with her!

I used Spectrum Noir markers and Copics to color this Christmas fairy in. Plus, I used two colors of Stickles on her wings. Not sure if you can tell, but the white oval she is mounted on is shimmery and has a really cool brushy texture to it.

My sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

I would like to take a moment to make special mention of today's date. December 15th. Today, my Rhiannon was born. She's 4 now, and I can hardly believe it. The time has flown by, and my baby girl is certainly no baby anymore. Happy Birthday, Rhiannon!!!!! I love you, Baby Girl!!!
