Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #309 - Winter Birthday

Happy weekend krafty peeps!
Wow how time is flying by right now.  
Just a couple more weeks and it will be Christmas!
I don't know about you but I'm no where near ready yet.
I will be putting up my tree and decorations this weekend.
But I still have a lot of gifts to make and buy, cards to 
finish and the holiday baking that I love to do.  
Not sure how it's all gonna get done but I'm going
to try and enjoy it as much as I can :o).

We have a new Saturday challenge up at 
Have you been following along with our 12 Days of Handmade Giving? 
The Krafty Girls have come up with some spectacular handmade gift 
giving ideas, tune in to the blog to check them out!
I've been so impressed with the gifts so far and hope to try them all. 

Our THEME for this week's challenge is "Winter birthday".
I have several friends and family members with 
birthdays in December and January so I love the
opportunity to get a card done for one of them. 

My card today features the beautiful Snowball Fairy
from Kraftin' Kimmie - take a peek:

I actually surprised myself and used a monochromatic
color scheme.  I can only seem to do this when I don't
think about it.  When I'm told to use that my brain freezes LOL.
Can you see her sparkly wings and stars? It's kind of hard to see
in the photo but it's gorgeous IRL (courtesy of Wink of Stella pen).
I also added lots of bling with some clear rhinestones layered
on my snowy die cuts.  I think my recipient will love this card :o).  

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

I was inspired by the snowflakes. My style is Classic & Elegant (I hope)
