Sweet Angel and a Sweet Sketch!

Happy Wednesday!! 

Today is an important day for two reasons..

First, it is Sweet Sketch Wednesday which means that Arlana has a new sketch for the week,

And secondly, it is the last day that you can enter to win my BLOG CANDY!!  I will be closing the comments tonight at midnight and announcing a winner tomorrow!  A link is provided at the bottom of this post!

So here is this week's sketch.  We are already up to SSW Sketch #27!



This week we are sponsored by Bee Crafty Digital Downloads.   Please check out her blog where you will see some fabulous samples of her wonderful digis!!  If you choose to play along with this week's sketch, then you could have a chance to win THREE of her digis for FREE!


The Bee Crafty image that I chose to work with this week is called "Wish Fairies"  but for my creation today I am calling her an "angel" OK?  I wanted to do a Christmas card and needed an angel.  In fact this card is also being submitted into the Digital Tuesday's challenge # 36 which was to incorporate a Christmas Song into your card.  So my card is based on the song "Angels We Have Heard on High."



I couldn't help but grab some of my red and blue papers that I keep using this season.  These papers come from SEI's Winter Song collection.  Look closely at the trees above.  I added these to create a scene that my angel was watching over.  I used the Deep Woods stamp from Unity that I stamped in Versamark Ink and then lightly chalked using green chalk.  So technically the traditional colors of red and green are still present on my card! LOL!


The snowflakes are diecuts from K& Co. and the sentiment is one that I printed out on my computer.  The blue ribbon is from a collection I bought on Ebay.  I think this card will go to one of our sweet granddaughters for Christmas.  I am sure they will find this image to be as sweet as I do!


Well, this does it for today, but don't forget to visit THIS POST, and leave a comment and become a  Follower of both my blogs for up to three chances to win the BLOG CANDY that will be given away tomorrow!  I will be closing my comments out tonight at midnight.

Have a great Wednesday and may your bucket overflow with angels watching over you!

That little angel is so sweet! I like the effect of using the same dp to matt the image that you used on your card background. Very pretty!
