Winter Fairy

It would be wonderful if this little guy could blow some cooler air our way.  The temps have been in upper 90's and even reached over 100 degrees this month.
For this card I got to play with my new cottage cutz dies.  I just got the snowflake wreath and the snowflake border so I can work on some more Christmas cards.  The snowflake wreath was a little more difficult to cut.  I had a hard time getting a complete cut until I added an extra piece of cardstock in my cuttlebug stack.  Then it cut perfectly.  I colored his wings with T1 and T4 copics and then painted with extreme glitter paint.  I wanted them to look silvery and I think they turned out great.
