CHNC challenge 77: things with wings

We're now nearer to Christmas 2012 than 2011 - a scary thought really, the year is going so quickly. It's time for another challenge on my CHNC blog. If you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, now might be a good time to do so - I'd love to see you there.

For today's CHNC challenge 77 the theme is 'things with wings' - I'm asking you to include 'something with wings' - perhaps an angel, a fairy, a robin ... anything with wings, as long as it's a Christmas card.

This week's challenge is being sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop who kindly supplied me with the gorgeous 'angel with harp' digital stamp that I've used on my card. I've also used the sketch that has been given for Digi Doodle Shop challenge 112: follow that sketch:


For the background I've used some vellum which has gold embossed wording on to a white card blank - my Xyron comes in very handy because it means the vellum sticks perfectly without showing any adhesive.

The two pieces of card on the left are from my offcuts box - another opportunity to play in the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 24, edged with gold copic pen and copics were used to colour and edge the image that was die cut with a nestie. The addition of the gold foiled 'Christmas greetings' completes the card.

You'll notice that I actually managed to take this photo in the garden this evening - it was dry and light enough - makes a change!


This is also for:

Holly jolly Christmas: put a song in your heart - Hark, the herald angels sing ...
ABC Christmas: L for lyrics - use the theme of a Christmas song/carol - Hark, the herald  angels sing ...
Sparkles forum CHristmas 17: monochromatic
Pattie's 46: monochromatic
Truly, madly, crafty June: monochrome
Emergency crafters: butterflies, birds or anything with wings
Twisted Tuesday: it's clear you love to create (I used vellum for the background) + twist: include something you love - making Christmas cards, colouring with copics
