Christmas Angel

Here's a Christmas Card using LOTV Stamp 'Icy Angel'. Now she doesn't look very icy does she? LOL - I've gone for non-traditional colours on this one...I just felt like making a Christmas Card that was bright and cheery! the sentiment comes with the stamp.

The paper was freebie with Crafts Beautiful magazine last year and just thought it went with my little angel... the flourish was a free sample that Tracy kindly gave me with an order from Dies to Die For and I think it's called Mega Flourish 2. Flower is from My Crafty Heart and is Prima 'Miss Godivas' Marshmallow. Gem is from stash.

 I've coloured Icy Angel with watercolour pens and added stickles to the wings, stars and flowers... hope you like it...

I hope you are all managing to stay safe and dry in this horrible weather... weekend was very dismal and wet!! Thankfully I could stay indoors warm and cosy and I made a couple of Christmas Cards on Sunday... then watched Crickley Hall... ooh it is SO spooky... some of the scenes were filmed just around the corner from where I live... the rest is filmed in Derbyshire which is perfect for ghost story... ;-)
Hope you all have a good week!
Will catch up with you soon....
Love and Hugs
