Magnolia Christmas Angel

Another Christmas card completed. Yeah!!! This card was such a challenge for me, not because it was hard, but just everything was going wrong. I started running out of Copic ink and had to refill, had a stickles glob to clean up and I just didn't like the way the flowers turned out. I am satisfied with the final result even though it is not what I had originally had it mind. I used dazzling diamonds glimmer mist on the snowflakes and flowers but it doesn't show up in the picture. I used Silver Ice Stickles on the stars and Crystal Stickles on the wings. I am entering this into the Tuesday Throwdown challenge. Their challenge this week is Christmas in July

This is a beautiful card and I don't see evidence of any mishaps. My favorite Christmas cards are those done in pastels. Thank you for sharing.
