Peace on Earth

Good evening (night!?) my lovely friends. Here's a very quick post from me to wish you all a wonderful Christmas, filled with joy and surrounded by the people you love best! I, personally, am looking forward to spending Christmas day with my children, their lovely partners and my gorgeous granddaughters. It's an extra special time for me as it's Emily's first Christmas.
My card is made using a beautiful new release image from The East Wind, as soon as I saw it I had this design in mind (or something similar :) I coloured the angel with my copics.. I wanted to keep it very light and simple so I used shades of cool grey and very pale green. I was sooo tempted to add glitter to her wings, but managed to resist! There's plenty of glitter on the rest of the card!:)

Sorry about quality of photos, terrible light today!
 I hope you like it because this is my wish for you all ...Peace and Joy!
Have a wonderful Christmas

Stunning image and a fabulous card and it actually made me think that this year I have hardly seen any Christmas cards saying Peace on Earth and by heck do we need it.
I hope that you have a wonderful time with all your family and a very Happy and healthy 2015 and I look forward to seeing your creations next year.
