Angel Blessings

     Today I'm celebrating angels, blessings, and new life as it begins on Christmas day.  I chose this wonderful image from Ching-Chou Kuik with an angel guarding and nurturing a new polar bear cub.

     I colored with my ProMarkers, adding glitter to her wings, the snowflakes & the icicles in her hair.  I used a die from QuicKutz to cut the image, then backed that with mulberry paper which I 'feathered' along the edges.

     I added that piece to the card front, then left it CAS at that point.  I wanted the image and the sparkle to be the focus.
