Christmas angel

Hello! How are you? Good, I hope. :) I know It's only September, but I'm already in a Christmas mood. Crazy, I know. lol The other day I have already bought a few bits for Christmas gifting and I've been making (mainly) Christmas cards for at least a month now. Can you tell that Christmas is my favourite time of the year? lol

Today I want to show you one of the Christmas cards I made. I went for a bit untraditional colours and I really like it.

I used the beautiful angel image from LOTV and the gorgeous vintage Merry Christmas stamp from Recollections. I *think* the DPs were a freebie in one magazine last year (or maybe 2 years ago?).  I colored the image with Promarkers. On the angel's wings I added diamond Stickles and on the angel's head wreath I also used Viva decor pearl pen. Around the image I stamped with snowflake stamps from Stampabilities and G Studio. The big snowflakes are Marianne Design dies and the small snowflakes are made with my craft punch. In the center of each snowflake I added a crystal from my stash. The lace I used on my card is from my stash as well. The white ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and the purple ribbon is from CropStop. To cut out the ovals I used Spellbinders' dies.

So much from me today. I wish you a wonderful day! Hugs! xx
