Peace on Earth - Happy Mother's day to all my friends in blogland. You are right this is not a Mother's day card, but a Christmas one. I had vowed that this year I would play the Christmas challenges throughout the year and not be cramming at the last minute. While I didn't start in January, I am starting now. So this is the first of many out of season Christmas cards.
I could start with none other than the Angel of Hope image by Michelle Perkett. I have made several cards with her, but I never tire of coloring her. She is such a great image and can be used for occasions besides Christmas. She could be used on a sympathy or Easter card. So far I have only colored her in one color scheme, but sometime I would like to color her in rainbow colors.
My DP is from the Seasonal Shop at Hobby Lobby. I love this paper pad. I completely used a whole pad 2 Christmas's ago and have started on my second. The sentiment is a Christmas Recollection's pack. Ribbon is from my stash, as is the little gold squares.
My image is colored with Copics. and I used my gold Spicia pen for the little stars. I used Holly Stickles on the angels dress and Stardust Stickles on the wings.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
