Secret Crafter Christmas Angel

Within about two minutes of seeing this new digi release, on Saturday morning, at the Secret Crafter I had purchased and downloaded it and was getting my printer set up.  I think she is so sweet and I also think it is the very first time that I have made a blue and lemon Christmas card!  As I was passing the Secret Crafter shop (I am lucky to live close by) I just had to have a little detour to the shop to stock up on a few bits (I love the new Icicle Stickles that I bought from there - very, very glittery!).

It has taken me until this morning to finish making the card because I love to colour the image and then I seem to like to mess my table up as much as possible with as much craft stuff that I can put on there.  I will spend a day um-ing and ah-ing, shuffle the craft stuff around the table a bit more, then finally I will get my brain focussed on putting the card together!

Here's what I used:
Image - Christmas Angel digi from the Secret Crafter, coloured with pro markers and glittered with Icicle Stickles
Paper and glitter card - DCWV
Snowflakes - Sizzlits dies
Circular sentiment - digi from Sentiments 4 You
Dew drops, jewels and other bits from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Crafty Pad - Christmas
I Did it Creations - Surprise me/anything goes
Gingerloft - Winter
Craft Your Passion - Glitter and sparkle
Wild Orchid - Pastels
Move along with the times - Use pro markers
2 Sisters - Anything goes

Thanks for looking, hope you've enjoyed your visit!

Oh Amanda, this is gorgeous, love the colours and that image is so sweet! You sound like you work the same as me, I have everything out on top of my workdesk too, chopping and changing all the time, then it takes me as long to clear it all away.
Have you managed to catch up with Vicky yet at SC while you've been shopping in there? She's lovely!
Wish I lived!
Hugs, Donna x

Fabulous card Amanda, the blue and lemon work perfectly, even if they aren't traditional colours - they are very modern though.
Hope you are having a good day.
