This is my card for today, it's a card I have already showed you when I was guest designer for Meljen's Designs last year but since this beauty has now been turned into a rubber stamp I thought I'd show it to you again. Besides, I have so much more followers then I had back then.

This precious image is called Holly Christmas Fairy and the first time I saw her I thought... wouldn't she be perfect to place on a Christmas sentiment... and so I did :) :
Hope you like the bold colors with the white. It isn't what I usually do but I sort of love how it turned out. The papers are Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas (the 6x6 paper pad), the poinsettia is from a die-set by Magnolia and the ribbon and brads I bought at the Krea Doe (Dutch Fair) earlier this year and I have no idea what brand they are.Then all that's left is some white cardstock, two different embossing folders by Cuttlebug and again the square doillies I bought on Ebay. I've been distressing with my Frayed Burlap distress ink again and the image and papers has been spiced up with some stickles. The sentiment is an old one by Elzybells that no longer excists unfortunatelly. Here is a close up of the cute fairy:
Isn't she cute!! As always she was colored with Copic Markers and 3D paperpieced. The furr parts have been done with Fun Flock again.
I also decorated the back of the card. Again, you can find this gorgeous personalized stamp HERE and yes, the design is also by Melissa of Meljen's Designs together with Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. Finally... the little pieces:
