The angels shouted for joy

For this card I've used the sketch for Christmas card challenge week 35, with a bit of poetic licence because I've used a rectangle instead of a circle:

I've used a bit of an unusual combo of black, white and gold - it's a shame that the photo doesn't do the card justice - the gold is much richer irl. Papers are from a QVC Kanban Christmas kit from last year. The stamp is an inkadinkado one by Tin can mail, just simply stamped on to gold matt foiled card.

The strip of black lace is felt, so it's lovely to touch!

This is also for:
