Festive ABC

Thank you for stopping by.  I know everyone is super busy during this time of year, and I appreciate the company.  Irena, is the hostess this week over @ Our Creative Corner.  And Irena has a super clever and holiday inspired challenge.  She would like for you to creative a paper craft item where you use the ABC's {smile}.  A is for angel, B is for button, and C is for chipboard.  Of course anything goes for this challenge, not just cards.

here is what I created:

I used pattern papers Festive, and some holiday stickers, from Authentique.  This card was actually really fun to create.  I knew that I wanted to use some of the holiday pattern papers that I have, you know, to help use from my stash.  The buttons, and the library card download, are from Paper Trey Ink.  I used chipboard snowflakes from Pink Paisley.  The sentiment stamp, 'Enjoy the Season' was stamped in basic black classic ink.  This stamp set, Christmas Love, is from CTMH.  It was a set I received from a friend last Christmas.  The angel is a single stamp from a big-box craft store.  I stamped the angel in Versa Mark and used a rich red embossing powder to give the angel some depth.
With the holiday season quickly approaching, maybe you should play along with us.  Getting your creative juices flowing, could possibly spark the idea of your holiday cards, or a fabulous holiday wrapping.  I hope we see your entry @ OCC!

Happy Crafting! hugs, Sharon W.

Hello Sharon,
A most beautiful layered card in traditional colours, your Angel dominates wonderfully in your chosen colour Red; which demands attention. It is warm and friendly, with a little texture that gives the viewer an unexpected thrill.
Wonderful card.

I love how busy your card is with the offset of the silhouette Angel in red... like I said on the facebook wall, this REALLY makes the Angel POP off the page. I say "Great Card"!
