Hark the Herald Angel

Wow, it's been a while since I have had a chance to post anything!!!Boy time flies, especially around Christmas!!
I am very excited to share that I have been asked to be a DT Member for The Town Scrapper out in Petrolia, Ontario! I am super thrilled and hope you guys will swing by and check out all the great stuff Phebe has to offer in her store...and at very reasonable prices!! Look for some posts from me there in the new year!!!
Well, now that I've shared my exciting news(YAY), it's time to get to my post for today!!

This is my Christmas Angel card which I designed for my mother-in-law, Dolores, for Christmas!!
By simply following a few guidelines set out by High Hopes, I am now going to be entering it in their sketch challenge this week....just in the nick of time!
The stamp is a High Hopes Stamp called Herald Angel, which I coloured with my tombow markers. I wanted a Vintage/Victorian look to this card. I used a variety of papers(none of which had names on the back)which are likely The Paper Studio DP and some embellishments I had on hand from the dollar store and Wal-mart. I pop-dotted my angel and her horn naturally curled out off the paper which I couldn't have done better myself if I tried!!The circular piece of paper she is mounted above is not photographed to its true is actually more of a purple burgundy and does match the other papers....Scouts Honour!
So that is her!!Da da dada! Check out some awesome cards at Paper Blessings, A Little Bit of Pixie Dust and Amy's Paper Romance- these blogs are linked on my page!! I am sure you will be inspired and impressed!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
Merry Christmas!!! (20 days to go)
