Christmas Angels

     Recently purchased some adorable Lili of the Valley stamps for Christmas.  I immediately sat down and made 6 cards with the different images for my sisters and some other family members.  From my stash of Christmas DCWV I found some great paper...for this one I used a subtle background of holly leaves red on red with some gold metallic paper and Zva pearls (I like pearls) - These sweet little angels are mounted on my Spellbinders Floral Doily Motif die.  Sparingly used my glitter pen on their wings, stars and shoes.....I was very pleased with how this and the others all turned out.  Such simple but darling images.

Thanks for stopping by,
