Hello again this is my second post of the day so if you would like to see my other work please scroll down.
My card share this afternoon features an image that I bought from Funky Kits many moons ago in a sale this little beauty is called 'Guardian Angel' I found her while sorting through tons of stamps, she seemed to fit the idea that I had in my mind for a clean and simple Christmas card.
I stamped the image with Momento Black Tuxedo ink onto linen card stock I then added just a hint of colour using cool grey Copics, I then mounted the image onto black card stock, I used some black and white gingham card stock that I got from Anna Marie Designs.
I visited the Range store for the first time yesterday, it opened near me a few months ago but I can't say that I was that impressed, I did however buy a X Cut border punch which I used on black card stock then used some black and white washi tape, finally I stamped a sentiment at the bottom, all the layers have been mounted onto the 6 x 6 white scallop card with foam tape, an idea that I picked up while watching Heidi on Create and Craft, the hint of colour was something else that I saw her demonstrate so I have done that as well with the image.
a closer view of Guardian Angel 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
It has been a very long time since I entered so many challenges I hope that I have adhered to the rules but if not please do not hesitate to dismiss my card.
Many thanks for visiting have a lovely day
