Glittery angels

I am hosting this week's challenge at Winter Wonderland and my challenge is angels and glitter so we want to see some lovely sparkly cards. You could win a $15 certificate to spend at Whimsy stamps. I am really pleased with my card this week, it is the card I would choose to send to myself. The image is WOJ. I decided to use non Christmas papers for a change. I have so many gorgeous papers, which are suitable for any occasion and I wanted some really rich purples for this card. The papers are Papermania heather capsule collection. I added glitter to her wings and dress and punched some glittery holly leaves to add to to the Prima flowers and brads.

There are a lot of other Christmas challenges this week so I am also entering this card into the following challenges.
Sunday sketch and stamp
Magical Crafts Christmas in July
Paper Sundaes Lots of layers
Pear Tree Designs Glitter/sparkle
The Shabby Tea Rooms Christmas in July
Fab 'n' funky Christmas in July
Cute card Thursday Christmas

I have candy on offer in the post above.

Hi Marianne
She was the best choice really and love that we have the same taste, however I love how you have used the capsule mono papers and coloured her to match, superb colouring and love the glittered wings. I like the darker hair on her too, fabulous.
Have a great weekend hun
Hugs Kate xx
