First Bah Humbug Challenge

I've been keeping up with my personal quota of a Christmas card a week, just didn't post the last ones because they were a "multiple" batch I put together.  I did five of them; may include a pic at a later time.  But this week I saw that Bah-Humbug's challenge was things that fly.  I have a few images that would work for that, and I chose this one from Sweet Pea Stamps called Snow Fae, by Rachel Anderson.  I colored her in muted shades with my Prismacolors and used this week's Midnight Madness sketch.  The ABC Christmas challenge called for embossing and 3 embellishments.  Think I got that covered.  Not traditional colors, but I think it's purdy! :)
