Angel wings

I bought a few LotV stamps a few weeks ago as I really love their latest designs, but I've not had much opportunity to play with them until now.

When I saw this week's ABC Christmas Challenge - H is for Holly, and the new Crafts & Me Challenge #1 - Fairies or Wings, I immediately thought of this cute angel with the holly wreath on her head. I also used Helen's fab optional sketch from the ABC Christmas Challenge.

I also made this card for this week's Flutterby Wednesday#104, which is to use an angel, fairy or butterfly with sparkle, and this week's Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Challenge#34 which is also wings. Last but not least, Paper Play #14 has a theme of shiny happy people - ie use a person stamp with shine or sparke on it.

Main image: LotV, coloured with watercolour pencils and wings decorated wtih glamour dust;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards;
Papers: Kaiser Crafts;
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; iridescent gems by Papermania; ribbon from stash;
Tools: "labels four" nestabilities; Cuttlebug "Snowflakes #2" die and "Christmas Stars" embossing folder.
