Hear The Angel Voices

Hi again!  OK, don't faint, but I am actually back with a second post today!  Working on cards has been a nice distraction for me this week, so I managed to finish up another card before the weekend. It's for a few challenges I enjoy doing, but I don't always get my act together and complete them before the deadlines.  This time I did!

Here is another Christmas card:

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are again from the My Mind's Eye All Is Bright 6x6 pad.  The precious image is The Littlest Angel from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added lots of pearl accents with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  I also added Golden Rod Stickles to the stars and the flame in the lamppost and Star Dust Stickles to the wings.  There is a little Glossy Accents on the lantern and on the holly berries.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I used both a punch (Martha Stewart Modern Garland Edge Punch) and dies (Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Circle dies).  A sparkly 3-D poinsettia sticker finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a great weekend!
