Last minute card... and DT call at Fab 'n' Funky

I wasn't intending to make any more Christmas cards this year, but needed a couple of extras....time is short, life is busy so I opted for the CAS route! This card took literally 10 minutes to make :) I printed this beautiful angel with the background black. I love the way she looks uncoloured so I simply added a tiny bit of shading with a v pale grey copic, some glitter to her hair with a sparkly gel pen and covered her wings with Wink of Stella, wish you could see the lovely sparkle in the photo! I then die cut the stars and 'noel' from the background, stuck on 4 tiny gems and mounted the whole thing onto a piece of white glitter card! So quick, I think it's taken me longer to write this post!
I hope everyone is enjoying the run-up to Christmas and not getting too stressed....maybe we should take a leaf from Mathilda's book on how to approach the festivities.....

Bless her, she looks so peaceful and comfy on my newly cleaned and polished cream sofa....that brown fleece is just not big enough to cover all of it!

Before I go I'd just like to tell you that there's a DT call at FAB 'N' FUNKY, just click HERE if you're interested in joining our very friendly team!

You found one of my soft spots when it comes to subjects. Angels. Excellent card Chris. Looks like Mathilda swooned when she saw it. Smile. Excellent card.

Hi Chris, Found your blog via your HLS December Christmas Star entry and just became your newest follower. This is such a dramatic look with the black background, the subtle gray shading on this pretty angel, and I really like the way you've used the negative spaces. It's just beautiful. Thanks for joining us at HLS December Star challenge. Happy New Year. TFS
