A Little Prayer And September's Anything Goes - Any Image Challenge At The Ribbon Girl

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?
I'm back from a long break. I will explain my absence in the near future.
Today see's a new challenge over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog. So  for the next two weeks the challenge theme is ......................ANYTHING GOES - USE ANY IMAGE
There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs. You can find out more at the end of my post, and believe me you will not be disappointed!

I have made a Christmas card. 
The first of many as the festive season is fast approaching once again!!!

I used A Little Prayer from LOTV
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & polychromos pencils and matted the finished image onto a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Home For The Holidays papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and pine branches. Sizzix on the edge snow flurries, Marianne Design Ivy circle, Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle, Christmas Winter and Billes flourishes.
I have inked the edges of the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

Here is a list of the stunning embellishments that I used on my card from The Ribbon Girl

A close look at the floral arrangements.
I have covered the arrangements with Snow - Tex and lightly dabbed the bronze charm with acrylic paint dabber.

A close look at this adorable little angel.
I surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a length of 3mm white pearl string around the outside.
I used glamour dust to add sparkle to the wings, stars in her hair and the snow on the ground.
I dotted her cheeks with a white gelly roll pen and adhered 3mm white s/a pearls around the image.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and the smallest of a GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut.

We would love you to come and join in with our current challenge.
