A little bit of Christmas

Our DT leader Brenda of Penny Black and More sent each team member a craft pack, the same, or similar, to the one above and challenged us to make a Christmas card using our own Penny Black image. Thank you Brenda for the gorgeous crafty items.
 I put a White die cut shape, image and sentiment to the kit and this is what I came up with. The cute Christmas girly Angels and co-ordinating garland are from a set of penny Black stamps called " Candy cane wishes"  which I bought in a sale during the summer and up tp now has not been used. I was itching to get started.The card  shape was perfect for making an easel card. I used Rose Carmine and Celery Aquamarkers to colour my image. I did not want to overdo the colouring so left a good bit of White. I won't bore you what I did to make it all as it is easy to see on this card. I was really pleased with the end result.
I have entered it into the challenges listed below.
