CCAYR: September - Christmas Fairies

Evening all! Hope you've had a great day! I've been busy washing and food shopping but I did manage to get a run in this morning - boy did I know about having had a week off! Lol!!!!

There's a new challenge starting today at christmascardsallyearroundCCAYR. The theme for September is Christmas fairies. Here's what I did:

I used the mask from ,that special touch, to draw with - I wanted icicles from my white glitter paper and using the mask thats what I got - although I think if I'd done them freehand it wouldn't have been much different!!!! The image is, of course, from Mo Manning and has been coloured by promarkers and I've glitterised! The image has been cut with a spellbinders die and then distressed whilst still in place in the die. The sentiment is LOTV.

I'd like to enter my card for the following challenges:
