Christmas Angel

Well, it kind of feels like Christmas around here today because  it's cold and it's
snowing.  So, in my ongoing quest to meet my Christmas card goal for this year
I've managed to get a new one made.  52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown has a
Stash Challenge. This is a good way to use up what you already have laying
around and they want you to use paper flowers. I happen to have lots of paper
roses in lots of different colors. I stocked up a while back when Michaels had
embellishments on sale for 1/2 off and it's been a while since I've used them.
Here's how I used my paper flowers.

The Christmas Angel image is another free digital stamp from
I've only been playing with digital stamps for a couple of weeks and I have to say I'm
enjoying using them quite a bit. I started out coloring her with spectrum noir pens
and ended up going over the coloring with smooch ink just to give a little shimmer.
The rectangle she's on was cut with a Spellbinders die and I had the Noel sticker
in my stash from a couple of years ago.  I dry embossed the white background panel
a freehanded the banner.  Thanks for taking a look!
