Now here is my creation using the adorable winter image Chilly Bun Bun Fairy!!

Isn't this image just darling!! I colored it with copics and decided it would make the cutest easel Christmas card.  I added some SU felt snowflakes from my stash that I have been hoarding.  I used a punch around the page (Curvy loops) from Martha Stewart which I treated myself with for my birthday.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Christmas stamp set at Whimsy just released this past Sunday.  The yummy dp is from the new SU Candy Cane Christmas dp available in the winter mini!!  Love this paper!!  The snowflake is a silver metal charm and the image is glittered although it is hard to see in the photo.
