Barely there Christmas

I treated myself in the recent LOTV stamp sale and got this cute angel with the round bauble, I already had the oval one and found it very useful for Mum's cards, so that was my excuse for getting this one!  I've stamped him out and coloured with my Copic pens, then used the same Marianne Design die that cut the mat to add the little stitch holes right on the edge of the design.  Everything is flat again, and kept simple for the ABC Christmas challenge where it's the letter 'B' for barely there, i.e. limit the frills and embellishments.  And, I made the top pick in their previous challenge too!

I've gone over the yellow stars with a clear glaze pen and added additional white snow dots to the background.  I think Mum will like it for next year .. .. ..

And here is my card.  I found a scrap of blue Nitwit digi paper in my stash, it's not particularly Christmas but I think it works, gave it a white mat and stuck down onto a scallop 5" square card I had in my stash.  The little ticket is one I had printed out from Cuddly Buddly so I coloured it to match and stuck with 1mm foam pads so it will squish down and everything should go through the thin slot at the post office.

I can also enter my card into Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge for shades of blue, seeing as I've quite a lot of blue on my festive card!  And the Cutie Pie challenge is called January blues, so I'm in with them too!
