ABC Christmas challenge

This is the first of the ABC Christmas challenges.  A is for Angel and with the added challenge of adding a
charm and beads to your cards/project.
For the image I used a Magnolia stamp coloured with distress inks. The image is sprinkled with glamour dust. Tilda is sat on another magnolia stamp this time a large snowflake that was stamped onto yellow card, cut out then sprinkled with glamour dust,I then popped a bead in the middle. I was searching high and low in my ribbon box for ribbon to match the cardstock (which in daylight is hot pink and bright yellow) but couldnt find any so I found a small length of white ribbon and coloured it with a copic marker.  I used little bells for a charm which were threaded with more beads. I punced a border with a martha Stewart punch , machine stitched it then hand sew beads onto it.
All of this was layered onto Cosmo cricket Jolly Golly papers.

The quality of photos are rubbish I'm afraid due to the poor light.
