Angel Anya

After having a nosey around some challenge blogs, I've discovered Christmas with the Cuties and decided to enter with my first Christmas card of 2017.  The theme is always use a cute image and this month it has to be clean and simple, hopefully I've met the brief.

I decided to use The Greeting Farm Angel Anya as I think she's pretty cute, which I coloured with Copics, apologies my colouring is not the greatest but I'm learning albeit slowly ;)

Just because its Christmas and for me that means sparkly so her dress, wings and bow were covered with Stickles in red and white because I wanted more of a Santa angel rather than an angelic one.

Here's a close up, I'm hoping my camera skills have picked up the glitter.  The background was just embossed using a Cuttlebug folder inked before putting through the BigShot.  A stamped sentiment and a few red sequins to finish of my clean and simple card.

Challenges - Christmas with the Cuties - Use cute image/clean and simple

One final note, I'd like to say a big 'Thank You' to those kind people who have followed me.  I really do appreciate it and I will always reciprocate the gesture :) 

Supplies: White linen cardstock, The Greeting Farm Angel Anya rubber stamp, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, Stickles in red & white, Copic Markers and a few sequins.
