Christmas Angel

Christine is the host for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Bingo Board' and a 'Sketch' for this week's themes.

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons who are giving a £10.00 voucher and Becky's Place who are giving the winner three digis.

For my card I have used chosen the middle line of the Bingo Board 'Blue, Sparkle or Shine and Embossing' (although the sparkle doesn't show too well in the photograph).  I am entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Cute', Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes', Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Angels or Fairies' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank:  7" x 7" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Christmas Angels' Art Pad
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Lacy Squares'
Embossing: Creative Expressions 'Sparkle Squares', Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Blue Moondust, white silk
Snippets: Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle

I embossed the white card and trimmed it to a square, this was layered onto blue Moondust card before being attached to the centre of the card blank.  I die-cut and embossed a Lacy Square from blue Moondust card.  I trimmed the Christmas Angel so it fitted inside the embossed area of the Lacy Square and then sprayed it with two coats of Spray and Sparkle.  When dry, I layered the image to the die-cut square and  attached it to the card front.
