Christmas Angel

Just wanted to pop by and remind you all that there is still time to participate with your Joyfold cards for the ABC Christmas Challenge. To show you how much fun they are, I have created another to share with you today.



For this card, I have used up some remnants from my stash along with some cardstock in a brown and a cream.  The image which I bought after Christmas and am using for the first time is from Whiff of Joy and is called Praying Angel. The sentiment is from Stampendous and the little flower is from Prima.
I have used a number of different techniques as part of my card. In the background, I have stamped a flourish on my background paper, all of the cream coloured mats are embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder, the edges of all papers have been inked for a more distressed/vintage feel  and I have also created a little pocket which holds two tags that I have tucked in there for writing happy Christmas wishes. With so many different surfaces to embellish, a joyfold card is perfect for trying new techniques in small doses.

I hope that you will stop by and join us in the challenge, we really do enjoy stopping by your blogs for a visit. Have a great week.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
