Joy To The World

Good morning blog friends. Todays card is another LOTV image called the Little Trumpet.  Sorry for so many Christmas cards but I really have so many to do that I'm trying to forge ahead.

This is a simple little image and easily coloured.  I'm not sure what happened to the lighting on the picture but the skin tone in real life does not look as dark as it does in the picture. I used Spellbinders standard circles to cut the image and petite scalloped circles to diecut the matt from lilac Bazill Basics. The backing papers are once again Papermania Contemporary Christmas. I really like these, and best of all I am using up a lot of my old stash which has got to be good.  The lilac and greys tone so well that I coloured the angel's robe with cool greys and lavender.  The corners are from the Marvellous Squares set. I computer generated the sentiment and a  few purple Papermania Shimmer dots finished  it off.

Well I hope you have a good day today.

Love from Christine xx

Hi Christine. LOTV win again, love the way you have coloured the angel's robe and I would never have thought of using grey for the background but it' s just right. Making Christmas cards have taken over our crafting.
