Christmas Angels

I've not had much time for crafting this week as I've been catching up with jobs after our holiday, so was pleased to see that the current ABC Christmas Challenge is 'Q for Quick Layout'.  I've used a pre-coloured image for this quick card which I am also entering into Christmas Card Challenges 'Angels', ABC Challenges 'N is for Noel' (create a Christmas themed project) and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.  The card is from my snippets drawer, so I'm also popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Christmas Angels' Art Pad
Embossing: Creative Expressions 'Sparkle Squares' 
Other: Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Gold mirri and white silk card

I embossed a snippet of white card with the Sparkle Squares, layered it onto gold mirri and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the Christmas Angels image so it was slightly smaller than another snippet of gold mirri, this was then attached to the centre of the card.   I used a Wink of Stella to highlight the angels and Diamond Stickles on the clouds.
