Christmas Angel

Good Morning!

Hope you're having a great week so far. It's been chilly chilly here, so not ready for winter! Great crafting weather while staying in where it's warm though, so I guess ya can't complain about that. Hope it's nice where ever you are.

Yesterday we had a new digital stamp release at Whimsy Stamps. There are lots of fab new images, some for the upcoming holiday season and some others great for every day use. You can see them all HERE in the Digital Collections.

Today I would like to share a card I created using the new Little Christmas Angel image illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I think she's just darling and she was also fun to color too.

I colored my image with Copics and then cut her out and glittered her wings. The papers are Bo Bunny and I love them! So festive and fun. The edges were stitched on the sewing machine. I've embellished with ribbon, sticky gems, flowers, and holly leaves.

This card fits the challenges at:
Sketch Saturday: Layout/Sketch
The Crafty Pad: Stitching
Paper Players: Anything Goes
Bee Crafty: Christmas
Our Daily Bread: Sparkle
Secret Crafter: Anything that Flies
Alphabet: Angels and Fairies
Totally Papercrafts: Bling

Thanks for dropping over for a visit today. Hope you have a wonderful day filled with crafty goodness!
