Tiddly Inks challenge 31- Musical christmas inspiration!

Morning peeps!!!

Deck the halls with boughs of holly....Fa,la,la,la,laaaaaaa,la,la,la,la!!!!!
Yup, that is my favourite christmas carol! I love it because it is happy and jolly and so much fun so its the very carol I used for my musical inspiration for my DT challenge card for the Tiddly Inks challenge blog this week.
So get out your christmas tiddlies and join with the fun!! You have until 10pm (CST) on the 13th December to add your project over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog using the fabbo little linky tool!!

For my card I use the supercute little christmas pixie from the Tiddly Inks store. She is just so lovely and cute and her holly looks were just perfect for my favourite tune!!! The holly paper is also from the store and I love it!! All the little berries on my card have glossy accents on them and they are so sweet!!
I used one of my fabby new hunky dory acrylic domes (that I bought from Jo's new shop, Let's create in coningsby.)
And here's the inside of the card!! I googled the lyrics and found this lovely vintagey looking picture that I saved and cropped a bit.

I made the sentiment for both the outside and inside on my computer and cut out some of the holly sprigs left on the card from cutting out the circle for my dome!!! I popped some on the front too around the edge of the dome with a few martha stewart branches.

Inside my dome I poured a few white seed beads ( that was not an easy task!!! lol!!!) they kept rolling around and in the end I had to tuck them in between poor pixies legs!!!!! the snow on the ground beneath her feet is torn vellum.

I coloured her with promarkers and here's the colours I used....

Skin-blush and soft peach. Clothes-berry red, crimson and pear green.Hair- buttercup and gold.

Then a few highlights here and there with my at you spicas ( oooh i love these!!!)

Phew!!! I think I remembered everything!!!! Must go and brave the cold and ice ( hoping not to get too close to british gas van man today after yesterdays dancing on ice!!! lol!!!!)

Thankyou so much for popping in on me!! huge Hugs
