Wing your flight o'er all the earth

It’s sketch challenge time over at Outlawz and my card today features Angel from this month’s sponsor, Polkadoodles.

And here’s this week’s sketch.

As the image I chose was an angel I figured I’d make a Christmas card, something I always leave to the last minute!  It’s hard to tell in the photo but to add some sparkle to the angel I used Twinkling H2O’s and Glamour Dust on her wings.  I wanted the ornament to shine also so I outlined it with a Gold Gelato, the rich colour doesn’t show so well in the photo, and also sprinkled on some white Fran-tage, also difficult to see in the photo.  The lace accents were the perfect shape, they are actually two thirds of the actual piece of lace, I cut out the middle section as it was just too much for the card.  It’s a beautiful lace though and one of the many laces I received as a gift from two special friends while on my big American adventure.

I love my embellies and dug deep into my stash for the ones on my card, I knew I had Christmas themed ones somewhere, just had to find them, including the holly and berry buttons.  I find the shank on the buttons mean they are hard to adhere to a card so I cut them off with pliers so hopefully that doesn’t mean I’ve cut off my chance to enter the current Brown Sugar challenge.

With my Christmas theme and embellies I’m also entering this in the current challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year ’Round.  And, as I am using a Polkadoodles’ image (although a now retired one), I’m also linking this up at Polkadoodles where they also have a Christmas challenge going on.
