M for Magical

The current ABC Christmas Challenge is 'M for Magical' which can be a magical image or sentiment - I've chosen to use a cute Lili of the Valley angel topper.  The paper, card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer so I'm visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop and am also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Pretty Christmas' pre-coloured topper
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Large, Memory Box Mini Holly Leaves
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Other: Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Silver and red mirri card, green card, green holly and red sentiment paper, white ribbon

I layered the green holly and red sentiment papers onto a square of silver mirri card and wrapped a piece of white ribbon around the join before attaching it to the card blank.  The topper was attached to a die-cut, embossed square of silver mirri and attached to the card.  I then made a small ribbon knot to the left of the topper.  I attached a tiny snippet of green holly paper to green card (to strengthen it) before die-cutting the holly leaves, I die-cut the berries from red mirri card and then attached the holly to the bottom of the card.   To finish, I used Diamond Stickles on the snowflakes and added a Wink of Stella to the angel's wings, dress and holly leaves.

Wonderful card Kath - this is so much my style too, LOTV strikes again and the papers go so well with her dress etc. And, of course the ribbon/bow is a lovely touch as well.
