I can't believe I've made ...

... a Christmas card soooooooooooo early in the year! However I had to use one of the new images from Emma Canning and as I have neglected my promarkers for a while now, it was great to have a little colouring session. I have used "Angel" as she looks so serene but then you know what they say about the quiet ones .... !

Image: Angel by Emma Canning
Nellie Snellen, Spellbinders & Marianne Design dies
X-Cut heart punch
Ribbon & pearls from stash
Gold Liquid Pearls 
Sentiment printed on to Safmat
Coloured with promarkers

I have deliberately coloured the image in soft tones as that is how I thought she wold look being so angelic. The baubles were made using off cuts of handmade paper, a little border, heart and dots of liquid pearls. The Spellbinders Lace Doily background is actually the grease proof paper I use to help cut the dies and free them easily; it seemed such a waste to just bin it!

I am entering my card in to the following challenges:

Love to create - punches and dies
Whoopsi Daisy - punches and dies
Pink Elephant - use ribbon
Christmas Card Challenges - use something new
That Craft Place - things with wings
Clearly Inspired Challenge - things with wings
Dream Valley Challenges - die cuts and punches

Well better go and nag Luke as he moves in to his house tomorrow .... 4 lads sharing a house .... uuummm, not sure I'll visit there much! He has to take up the house early even though Uni doesn't start back until mid September but he's hoping to find a job nearer Uni to get some extra funds. Okay what hasn't he packed ......
