Christmas Attire - Saturated Canary - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning and welcome to my new follower Tanja, so glad to have you viewing my cards.
Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where the lovely Lesley has chosen the theme of 'Angels'.
I have used Christmas Attire from Saturated Canary.  I must admit that she does look a little like a fairy, but the serene look on her face definitely takes her up to being an Angel, well to me anyway :)


Look at me being so 'On Trend' with a chalkboard plaque;).  She is cut using SB Radiant Rectangles. She is backed by some plain co-ordinations card and then I added snowflake acetate to give it more details. The  plaque was a bargain from The Works, (they often have some unusual embellishments, well worth checking out).  The poinsettia is also a SB one.
Ribbon, pearls, dazzler and card candi from my stash.


The image in more detail. I added nuvo glitter to her wings, the baubles and to the holly in her hair. When colouring I thought her hair looked too dark so added white gel pen to add highlights.


This shows the inside of the card and highlights the acetate. The images were freebies from magazines.




We have a wonderful sponsor this week, The Hobby House who are offering a kit chosen by Jill of £10 worth of products.





I hope you will take the time to check out the beautiful cards made by the other 'Snowflakes' this week which can be viewed here, don't forget it has to be a Christmas project following this weeks theme.

I am entering the following challenges ;-


Thanks for taking the time to look
