Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #70

Good morning all.

It's time for another challenge over at CCWS and we hope you're playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. It's the turn of the Snow Angels to inspire you this week and Nicolet has designed the sketch. We are being sponsored by Krea Teja.

Papers are from Bearly Mine and have been layered digitally in Craft Artist. Image is "falalaemma" from All that Scraps (who are our monthly sponsor for April), I've coloured her with promarkers, used blue Stickles on her wings and mounted her onto a nestie scalloped oval. Ribbon and snowflake button are from my stash. 

I've rotated and flipped the sketch to suit the image.
