Star Angel - Celebrate the Wonder

Hello, everyone!  The holidays are over but I'm working on my 2019 cards!  Here is another one!


The cute image is from Gecko Galz Tiny Christmas Angels Collage Sheet.  I added Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle on the star and wings.  I used scraps/snippets of patterned paper from Winter Story 6x6 paper pack.  The grey card front (also a snippet) was dry-embossed with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow.  I used bow and tag dies from my stash to die-cut from scraps/snippets, along with some holographic leaf trim and snowflake sequins from my Dollarama stash.  The Baker's twine is from American Crafts.  

Here you can see the removable tag.  This is the first time I've tried this!  I stamped a sentiment from Penny Black The Wonder.


I was inspired by one of the sketches at The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch.  Each Design Team member picked her favorite sketch from the last few years, and this is Bonnie's choice:


I was also inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge 113, which is Spin the Wheel with the Letter X. The theme is Anything Goes with an elf, fairy, gnome, or pixie. An angel is acceptable too (I checked).



Since I used so many scraps/snippets of patterned paper and cardstock, I am also joining Di at Pixie's Snippet Playground 342.

I also found inspiration in the following challenges:
Crafter's Castle AG Optional Christmas Ornaments 2/3 C10 
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Any Christmas or New Year Card UE
Happy Little Stampers Christmas Optional Snow UE 
Incy Wincy 10 Years Celebrate 2/5
Three Amigos Blog Hop Christmas/Winter/ Holidays UE

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Good for you, already starting on your 2019 Christmas cards. This is such a pretty card and I love the removable tag. I'd probably use that tag as a bookmark, since I love to read.
