Angel for Christmas

Afternoon my crafty friends

Here is my second posting for today.  I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making this.

I used the skech from Cupcake Craft Challenge for this card and made it into an easel card in lines with Glitter Fairies challenge.

I have used an A5 white pearlescent card for my base.  I have used navy blue for the first layer and matted white embossed card from Kanban for the second layer which I have distressed using Dew Drop Brilliance Ink in Sky Blue.  Using my Spellbinder die (sorry don't know the name) I have cut out 4 mats for the 4 different layers.  The larger ones have been cut using white embossing Kanban card and pale blue with snowflakes card which I have layed vertically.  The the following 2 have been layered horizonally.  The angel images is from Lili of the Valley stamp which I have coloured in using my watercolour pencils and Sakura Glitter pens.  I have also used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and punched the border in white embossed card which I have layered onto navy card which is used for the stopper to help the card stand.  I have added gems to the centre of the snowflake border, the snowflakes left over I have used in 3 of the corners and added gems to those as well.  The sentiment is from my crafty stash.

Thank you for stopping by today
