Ragged Angel

Good morning Lovelies - have you got snow? We have some - for a change!!! The girls are hoping for more so we can build a snowman - but we'll see!

I'm back in Christmas for todays card - before last Christmas I bought this image from Mo Mannings store and never managed to get around to colouring her up - so here she is now and I just adore her - she's gorgeous - I've used the sketch from the Friday Sketch challenge for the layout (Mariska's sketch).

 The papers are a mixtureof |Marianne papers free from a magazine and one  from my stash - the stipey geen one has been embossed with a dotty embossing folder. The image was coloured with a combination of promarkers and spectrum noir pens. The flowers are WOC.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Big Hugs

  8. Hi Rachel, that image is so lovely and so perfect for a Christmas card. Your card is beautiful and I love that you finish the insides of your cards too. We have about 3" of snow but the ice is more of a problem, fortunately we are stocked up with food and don't need to go out in it. They did say last night that it is the 'wrong' kind of snow for making snowmen - so good luck if you try. Hugs, Anne x
