A Different Christmas Card

Hello everyone, it's time for challenge #9 over at Eclectic Ellapu and this week's host is Sheena from the pink team.
Sheena's challenge is - Jolly and Bright!
Now that can be interpreted in many ways! As it's that time of year my first thought was Christmas and I love cheery and bright!

This is what I came up with



I used a digi from Darcy's Diaries which is not really a Christmas image but I do think she makes a lovely Christmas angel! I coloured her with Promarkers then glittered the stars, and layered it up on some pink card then some metallic blue card. The background paper I discovered in my stash and was so pleased but I don't know where they're from! The silver ribbon is from Costco and the snowflakes are from a Christmas garland that I cut up and have been using the snowflakes ever since!
The sentiment is from Docraft and has been heat embossed with some lovely glitzy embossing powder that I got from the US.

This shows the glitter slightly more and what a cutie Christmas angel she is!

I do hope you find time to call over to the challenge and join us this week for this great theme and I will look forward to seeing you all there!

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate your time and I hope to see you again soon!
