Christmas angel

It was Dawn's turn to choose a theme for today's Christmas Card Club challenge (a group of us have got together to produce a Christmas card every fortnight - details of the group in my sidebar) and Dawn asked us to include an angel on our Christmas card.

I've made a couple of angel cards in the last few days (was tempted to use one of those for the challenge, but thought I would be good and do another specially for it) - I've made a step card from the Kanban 'all wrapped up' kit that I bought fairly recently.

Unfortunately, the first card I made went into the bin, otherwise there would be been two - this is the second such card I've wasted in a couple of days because of trying to rush and then getting sticky marks on the acetate.

Anyway, this card has an acetate layer that has been printed with the same picture as the underneath one - that one is glittered so the glitter then shows through the acetate. It's not possible to capture this properly in the photo, but I've done the best I can.

These are also for:
