Magical Christmas

Here is a Christmas card I have made using a Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Snowflake Angel".  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and fussy cut around the edges.  I have added Stickles glitter glue to her snowflake and wings.

The backing papers are from my stash.  I put some white card through a large dots Embossalicious embossing folder.  I have edged all the pink papers with a magenta Pan Pastel and the purple and white papers with a dark purple Pan Pastel.

I have finished the card off with a sentiment from Katy Sue Designs, die-cut snowflakes, pearls, 25mm lilac organza ribbon and 10mm double-sided lilac satin ribbon.
