Blue Christmas in July

I have fallen behind with my "Christmas card a week" resolution,  so with a few Christmas challenges around at the moment thought I would get back on track and add to the pile.

I used SN pencils again to colour this darling little angel and added a little bit of twinkle with my stardust pen. The base was covered with paper from Silent Night pad and the banner and poinsettia made with scraps from the same. I used "peace" from LOTV's Handwritten Phrases just to finish off.

I used glamour dust glitter for sparkle around the pretty edge of the die cut.

I would like to enter these Christmassy challenges
