Merry Christmas

Good morning "Creative Friends."  My card today is for the current Hero Arts monthly challenge, Creatures, Cards for Kids and Making a Scene.  I am continuing with Christmas cards.  I like this snowy little scene, however it so difficult to photograph.  I was going for a cloudy night look, but the white distressed edges are not showing too well.

Here is a close up of the sparkle....

The angel image was a gift from my sweet friend, Tina.  Unfortunately, I do not know the origin.  She sent me several stamped images, and I scanned them into Photoshop to resize.  If you recognize the manufacturer, please let me know.  I then colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and embossed the ornaments.  Additional sparkle was added with a Sakura glitter pen.

Paper:  Neenah Classic Solar White and Bazzill
Ink:  Versacolor, White, Vesamark and VersaMarker
Stamps:  Hero Arts and ?
Punches:  EKSucess border punch and Fiskars corner rounder
Other:  Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol, Ranger Embossing Powder, Queens Gold and Sakura Gelly Roll, Clear Star
