Ragged Angel - Mo Manning.....D

Yayyyyy another challenge going live over at my challenge blog ECLECTIC ELLAPU.  I am absolutely overwhelmed by the response we have had since starting up in October.... and long may it carry on I say!

This weeks challenge is hosted by the very talented Sheena and the theme is ''JOLLY & BRIGHT''.  Well it had to be yet another Christmas card didn't it lol!  Well it is that time of year afterall - oh did you not notice??? Well heres the rub.. only 15 days to go! Ha Ha!

Anyway back to business well pleasure really.  I decided to used the gorgeous Ragged Angel by the fantabulous Mo Manning.  I used this one alot last year and just still go back to it.  Not sure there is much improvement though lol.  Me that is not Mo!

I coloured her up using prisma pencils and initially used glitter for the snow around her feet.  This was not meant to be - I did not like it.  So out came the cotton wool and onwards and upwards to getting messy as per usual!  PVA and cotton wool hmmmmmmm!

The backing papers are by Summer Driggs.  Just love them.  The sentiment I magically made in Word.  This card is in fact for my dad and his wife.  Yes I am actually using this one!.  I used white crackle paint around the edge of the card.  I also used it on my snowflakes with some glamour dust on top. 

Now for the pics......

Well I hope you enjoyed your visit and I would love you to call again real soon.  Oh I would love it you dropped by ECLECTIC ELLAPU and left us some love.  Perhaps you could join in the fun while you are there.
