Christmas Card Club #14: Angels

Time for a Christmas card, my friends. This week the super talented Maureen has picked a lovely little theme for us... Angels. Personally, I really really LOVE angels. Here's my festive offering for our cosy little Christmas Card Club:

 I misplaced the patterned paper I had intended to use.
On to Plan B: made my own with the musical notes stamp
from CBS's Background Builder and TH Dusty Concord.
The gothic window is from CB Texture Fragments, stamped
with VersaFine Black Onyx. The sentiment is from CB Peace On Earth,
heat embossed in gold. To finish some gold ribbon tied in a simple knot.

Close up of the angel. She is from CB Family Christmas, coloured with
Graph'It and Promarkers. Metallic Gold Sharpie and a couple of red
bling help finish her look.

The sentiment is from CB Warm Christmas Greetings,
stamped with VersaMagic Perfect Plumeira.

My angel will be gracing these challenges:

Graph'It Colour Challenge: AG With Alcohol Markers
Completely Christmas #18: AG Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas: Show Me Some Glitter
Word Art Wednesday #138: AG Uplifting
Christmas Card Challenges #31: AG Christmas
CHNC #183: Let's Get Sentimental
Festive Friday #34: Photo Inspiration
