Anyway onto today, this is my early CCC post and this fortnight my blog friend Christine chose the theme for us. She wants to see wings on our Christmas cards but doesn't mind whether they are angels, fairies or birds. I bought this Art Pad Set 16 from LOTV a short while ago and it is so pretty that I decided to use this lovely little pre-coloured angel on my card. My favourite thing is to colour my images myself, but this was toooo cute to ignore.
I chose the LOTV Winter Wishes paper pad and then loads of dies. I used bits and bobs of white 'linen finish' card for the diecuts and sprayed them with Crafters' Companion Iridescent Spray and Sparkle. You can't see it in the pic but irl it looks quite good - even though I do say so meself.
I have started the inside of the card with the plaid paper plus a blue central square piece. I will add a verse/greeting later on.
