Christmas Angel

Hi there!  Yep, it's me again!  I'm back with another quick post for today.  You can tell I've been stuck inside and I've found some time for visiting my craft room.  This will be brief, I promise. I've made another Christmas card for a few challenges.  I am really happy with the little stack of cards I've gotten done so far!  Maybe I won't be swamped come mid-December!  Well, I guess we will see about that when the time comes!

Here is my card:


My card base is GKD Good As Gold and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Home for the Holidays/Winter Wings Petite Papers pack.  I've been hoarding these papers forever!  My adorable image is The Littlest Angel from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.   I just found out that the same image is available in a diecut card topper set called Christmas Angels at The Hobby House.  It comes in a pack of three different angel images and they are all adorable.  I printed my digi on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics in colors to match the beautiful toppers.  I added some pearl accents with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  I cut out the image with Spellbinders Labels One and framed it with Spellbinders Decorative Labels One.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some pretty lace, a triple loop seam binding bow with a 3-D holly sticker and a few crimson pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful evening and weekend!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Friday Sketch Challenge #49 (Shirley's sketch; I flipped mine one turn)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #64 (anything goes)
The Hobby House Challenge #3 (Christmas)

Here is FSC-49:

  17. What a beautiful card Carla - the image is adorable. I love the traditional Christmas colours, and the little pearl dots give an extra festive feel to the design. The Spellbinders frame is gorgeous - I have the plain Labels One, but I really NEED the decorative frames now!
