Christmas Waves a Magic Wand

This weeks challenge over at Stampotique Designers challenge is "Early Christmas". 
The hostess this week is Nellie who like many of us, yes that includes me, leaves the making of Christmas cards far too late and December just becomes a mad dash of a paper and glitter fest.
I have used "Angel" by Stampotique. This is one of the first stampotique stamps that I bought and I haven't really used her, so I decided it was time to bring her to life.
Background has been created on linen cardstock with dylusions sprays.
Stamps used
Stampotique "Angel"
Kaisercraft "Magic of Christmas"
Crafty Individuals Santa's Sleigh
Card has been sprayed with perfect pearls mists forever blue & pewter (I can't capture the sparkle in the photo)
Card has been edged and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer thick embossing crystals -  Silver Shine
I have also embossed using a credit card to add some texture and ground Angel. Individual grains have been embossed in the top half of the card to represent the stars (again photo doesn't pick this up, dam these dark evenings)
All has then been mat and layered several times and mounted onto an 8x8 card blank.
thanks for visiting my blog and please feel free to leave your comments, we all love reading what others think and I can pop over and visit you if I know you have been.
