Vintage Christmas Angels

Good afternoon my crafting friends, hope all is well with you. I won some images and papers from Crafty Suzy thanks hun - I know it was a while ago!!!! They are all from Crafty Individuals and I thought they were perfect for my first Christmas card of 2010 and for the challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge - this is a new Challenge blog to help you make your Christmas cards in time!!! their theme is A is for Angels. I have used the sketch at Papertake Weekly shown below.

I have also used a charm I received from my best blogging buddy Dawn AKA Craftykitten - you can see her gorgeous creations here - thanks hun. I have attached it to the button using jump rings and a foam pad. This is then mounted on a punched flower - in my favourite glitter card.

The angel image has been mounted on to a nestie - my latest purchase - labels one. The sentiment is one of the freebie tickets from Miss Cutie Pie - reduced in size a bit!!


I am also going to enter this card in the following challenges :-

Fussy and Fancy Challenges - Anything new,

Practical Scrappers - Butttons,

Sparkle Creations - Christmas plus buttons,

One Stop Craft Challenge - Something beginning with B (Button)and,

La La Land Challenges - Charm.

As ever I would love to hear what you think. Also don't forget to join in with my BIRTHDAY CANDY.
