A Cocoa Fairy in Our Cupboards

Today as the Lady Commander of Copics was preparing herself a warm cup of cocoa, she came across a rare site in our cupboards. As Angela opened the old silver tin, a cocoa fairy fluttered out of the chocolatey powder, sneezing cocoa dust and sparkles. A huge grin spread across the Lady Commander's face as she watched the cute, sparkly fairy fly about the kitchen gathering the necessary items to prepare a warm mug of cocoa.
I started by colouring this super cute image by Meljen's Designs with my Prismacolors. The sentiment is from the "Christmas Words" Dylusions set. I added some glitter to the fuzzy parts of the fairy's outfit and some sparkly red brads on the corners. This combined with the shimmery candy canes in the background earned me +184 glimmer exp points. I'm sure somewhere the Guardian of Glitter's heart is aglow with pride.
Here's a close up of the fairy so you can see the glitter a little better.
This inside sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn "Cozy Christmas" set. I also stamped the plate of cookies from that same set and coloured them with Prismas. The mug and steam came from the "My Cup of Tea" Lawn Fawn set. 
I stamped the Christmas lights from the Lawn Fawn "Cozy Christmas" set and coloured them with my Distress Markers.

The cocoa the fairy prepared was fantastic - possibly the best I've tasted. The Lady Commander was in her glory, running around the Guild Hall playing with the chocolatey, sparkly creature. I think the sugar high might also have something to do with that...

Hello! Your Christmas card is so adorable. I love your little cocoa fairy. Right up my alley as I love hot cocoa in cold weather! :) You've done such a nice job of coordinating papers and colors. Your little colorized fairy is fantastic. She's perfectly done to accent those very cute papers and mattings. Love the little buttons at the bottom of the card, too! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
