Peace on Earth Angel

Hi all!  Happy Tuesday!  Last week we had a chipmunk IN OUR HOUSE!  I came home from walking with the dog and she bolted to a corner and and Alvin went running across my living room. Now, I do think chipmunks are cute, but not in my house.  After almost 3 hours of trying to get him to exit the building without success, I gave up and went to Panera to color {and de-stress!}.  After picking up my kids, we spent the remaining time at the library.  {I pretty much fled the house until my husband got home.}  We finally managed to get Alvin out the door early that evening.  While I was at the library, I colored up the lovely image on my card today.

I was lucky enough to win a number of Lacy Sunshine images late last year.  There are a number of really lovely angels in the store.  This is the Joy to the World angel.  Now, I’ll admit that these images can be a bit daunting to color.  But, I’m really happy with how this turned out!  I opted to print this a bit larger and make it a true focal point of the card.  I also cut it out prior to coloring it, so that I would be that much closer to getting a card made.  Anywho, I went with a non-traditional Christmas color scheme — partly because I need to refill some red Copics.  😉

Since she is a big image, I only need to embellish her and add a sentiment. I stamped Peace on Earth from Jaded Blossom’s Elegant Holiday Greetings {LOVE this set for the pretty fonts used on the sentiments, plus the big snowflake is just gorgeous!} in VersaFine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then, I went to town with Martha Stewart crystal course glitter.  I love that it looks like the furry, snowy border!  And that was that!
