Angel and Snowflakes

The August challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round is 'Snowflakes' and  I made this card using the sketch at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  The paper, card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer so I'm paying my final visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Image:  Lili of the Valley 'Pretty Christmas' pre-coloured topper
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Gold card, gold and blue snowflake paper, gold ribon

I layered the topper onto gold card, the blue and gold snowflake paper were trimmed to size and layered onto gold card.   I layered these following the sketch and then wrapped a piece of gold ribbon around the bottom before attaching it to the card blank.  I attached a small piece of ribbon to make a bow and then highlighted the angel with a Wink of Stella.  Quick and easy - in fact it took me longer to find the papers amongst all of my snippets than it took to make the card!

Hi Kath
thank you so much for entering the playground again with this stunning card.
You have co-ordinated the papers to match the image beautifully and the bow finishes it all off perfectly.
