Angel and dove

Today hasn't been an easy one, so I felt I needed to wind down this evening and make a card. The first one I made (or perhaps I should say 'didn't succeed in making') went into the recycling paper - it went from disaster to disaster. I was going to give up, but thought I'd try again, so I've made this stepper card from the Kanban 'all wrapped up for Christmas' kit. I used scrap pieces from a previous card to adhere to the sides and across the bottom of the pale blue base card - for Pixie's crafty snippets 30 and Let's craft and create 50: scrap buster

 The picture is a beautiful acetate picture over a glittered one on card - I secured with little brads at the corners. Because of the reflection of the flash I had to take side views of the card, but did manage to get part of the picture showing the glitter in the third photo. In real life, the acetate puts a nice sheen on the card.
