Christmas Angel - Saturated Canary


Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my new follower Angelique who makes fabulous cards.
Today's card is definitely non-traditional Christmas colours and is 'Christmas Angel' a beautiful Krista image.


She is cut with SB oval and backed with a scalloped oval. Layered onto Marianne creatable squares. I have also added a Cottage Cutz Christmas doily and part of a MB frosty border. The pink paper is from Nitwits and the other and ribbon, pearls, lace, feather and charm from my stash. The flowers are WOC.



She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I also added distress ink to the background, Glamour Dust to her wings and glossy accents to her eyes and the baubles.


The inside reflects the front but with a double paper lace added. I also added stickles to the flowers and the sentiment was a magazine freebie.


I am entering the following challenges :-


Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. Hope you are all sorted out for Christmas, I'm nearly there but still have a few more cards to make and 2 prezzies to buy.
Have a good weekend
