Christmas Card Club - Better Late Than Never :)

Hello Crafters,
Firstly I'd like to thank everyone for the lovely get well wishes and comments yesterday, it really touched me to know that you are all thinking of me. I am feeling much better with every day that passes by and I'm hoping that I will be able to enjoy my trip to the Birmingham NEC on Thursday, it's been booked for ages and I was really looking forward to it. Hubby is coming with me of course,- he always jokes and says he is the most knowledgeable non-crafter around as he takes me to lots of fairs and to the NEC twice a year and dutifully follows me in and out of the stands and carries all my goodies for me, bless him.
So on with the reason I am here tonight -  my Christmas card for the challenge at CCC. Christine set the theme for this one and it was 'Lets See Some Wings'.

This stamp is from Crafters Companion and is called 'Angelica' and although she isn't specifically for Christmas I thought the gift she was holding and her wings made her fit the bill as a Christmas Angel. She is coloured with my Promarkers and her wings are Glamour Dusted. I embossed the backing card with a free embossing folder from a magazine, die cut the scalloped and plain circles, added some glitter ribbon, pearls and a greeting. Oh and the snowflakes are from my Cheery Lynn snowflake die.

I'd like to enter this into the Completely Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes #3
CHNC - Anything Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Girls, Girls, Girls.

Hope you all have a lovely evening,
See you soon,

Lorraine
