Winter sprite

Hi friends!
I have a mystery for you to try and solve today.
I have had this amazing sprite/elf/ fairy image for EVER in my digi stamp collection.
I cannot find any reference to where it originated.
Does anyone recognise it?
I want to give credit it but can't find it anywhere on the net.
I have Google imaged it, but it was like a sewing pattern.

Here's a card I made with my amazing little sprite in the hopes that you help me solve the mystery.

It's quite dark, as the lighting is bad this morning.
The sprite is already coloured, so I coordinated him/her, with papers I got in Derby while visiting Byrkley Park garden centre's craft shop with my amazing friends, last Sunday.
It's from the Papermania capsule collection, Parisienne Blue.
I sponged the Nestie circle with TH distress ink, 'Weathered wood'.
It matched beautifully!
The ornate frame is Joy crafts 'Square Frame' die.
Holly is from a Marianne die and I added a few tiny red mirror the ones in the picture.
Lastly, I painted Wink of Stella onto the wings and pompoms on my sprite.

I sincerely hope I'm not encroaching on someone's copyright.
Please help me solve the mystery!
