Snowy Angel Sketch

We went shopping the day after Halloween and stores already had their Christmas decorations up and holiday music blaring. Eek! I'm not ready for Christmas yet. I have a small pile of Christmas cards completed, but I have many more to make this month. I decided to use Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #41 as an opportunity to knock another one off the list. I actually bought this stamp for my friend Anna during a secret sister round not too long ago. I came this close to keeping it LOL, but Anna was sweet enough to stamp some images and send them my way. Thanks Dude! I covered the wings, tops of the hats and the snow with Star Dust Stickles - it's nice and sparkly! The bottom edge was cut with scallop scissors, then I used a paper piercer to poke some holes. The entire image is raised with dimensionals. Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Stamps: Snowy Angel (Stampendous), sentiment (TAC, Winter Wonderland - retired)
Paper: Baja Blue, White, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Basic Grey - Figgy
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber
Other: Prismacolors, OMS, scallop scissors, paper piercer, dimensional, Copic C1 marker, Stardust Stickles, Ticket Corner punch, silver brads, square Nestabilities

Sooo cute, Kim! Love that image and the colors you used! I agree... I'm not quite ready for all the Christmas decor and carols, but I sure do enjoy making Christmas cards anytime of year! Hope you have a great weekend!

Dude! Way cute! Totally love the layout and the colors! Now, I'm gonna have to pull it out and play with it! And oddly, I just brought my first Christmasy item today. But in my defense, Joann's had it 40% off so I had to get it! And shockingly there's like less than 50 days until Christmas!
