Angels - CCC - Challenge # 14

Good morning.  Well in true English fashion the weather changed for Glastonbury and they are partying in the mud. So, no change there!

Today it is time for another card from our friendly little group who just want to get ahead with our cards so we don't have a mad panic in November.  If you are interested in joining us then just drop me a line. You will find the names of my fellow club members on my right side bar if you would like to see their Christmas cards.  Maureen has chosen our topic this week.  I know that she loves angels so I wasn't surprised to see her choice.

My Card

Unfortunately it is not a very good picture because it is matted with silver mirri card and the backing paper is also  impregnated with a silver foil pattern.  The paper is from First Edition Silent Night and it really does look fabulous in real life but the picture certainly does not do it justice.  Silver always seems to come up almost black doesn't it?

My card is 7" x 7" from Anna Marie Designs.  The image is an LOTV stamp Angelic Candle coloured with Flexmarkers and Promarkers, matted onto core'dinations then silver mirri.  I embossed a piece of the core'dinations with Die'sire Seasonal Music and also used the same card to die cut the Cheery Lynn Holly Corner.  The sentiment is from Little Claire Christmas Sentiments and matted onto SB Lacy Circle .The flowers are WOC and the silver bead sprays are very old stash but I have no idea where they came from. Finally some ribbon and gems from my stash to finish - and the obligatory Christmas glitter of course!

I actually made a couple of other cards because although this was the card I wanted to make I couldn't find the stamp and I had to have something to show.  Anyway, it turns out I had misfiled the stamp and instead of it being in my Christmas box it was in the sentiments box.  Note to self - take more care when putting things away!  I will show those later.

Well that's it from me. We are going to the Bloxham Steam Rally this morning which has more things than steam engines, I hasten to add!  After the terrible rain on Friday and Saturday I think I might need Flora's flowered wellies because I guess the field will be pretty water logged.

Hope this finds you all well.  Take care.
