Little Angel

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers. Today sees the launch of another Twelve Days of Christmas Challenges over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge The theme this week is Christmas to Die For you must use a Christmas Die and a Ribbon . I've used a Saturated Canary digi stamp I bought last year and had not used before for my DT card. She's called Little Angel I just love her. I really struggled to get a decent photograph my camera didn't like those metallic flowers one bit hence the white background.

Card Recipe

6x6 Blank Card
The stamp is Saturated Canary Little Angel painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils sprinkled with Shabby Blue Frantage  and some Wink of Stella on the wings and halo.
Papers are Pion Wintertime in Swedish Lapland Northern Lights 6x6 sheet. The paper edges are inked with walnut stain Distress Ink
The ribbon is Christmas Words Silver from Crafty Ribbons Shop I made a scrunched border with it by attaching it to a strip of double sided tape attached to a narrow piece of card.
Snowflake are Xcut and Marianne dies. The smaller Marianne ones are covered in Shabby Blue Frantage from Live and love Crafts
White and Silver Berries are Wild Orchid Crafts
The metallic dark silver flowers and leaves are from Ross Papercraft Show sorry no make on them. In a clear bag !!
Acorn was in my stash 
Wooden sentiments are from a box I bought at Hobbycraft
Grey pearls Kanban
I hope you can find time to visit the challenge this week and add one of the fabulous Christmas cards you are all making. Have an enjoyable rest of the week and a great weekend. I hope you've all got some nice things planned. Hugs Carole x

Very pretty Carole, I love that image not seen it before.
I had to photograph some cards using acetate recently and it was a nightmare so I know where you're coming from - but your picture looks just fine.
