Last Minute Christmas Card DU2DS #28

Hi folks!
Hope you are all well and keeping warm. I'm a little behind with this DT card. What with school closures and making snowmen, things had to be put on hold for a wee while. I needn't have stayed up quite so late making Christmas cards for teachers... hey ho... they'll just have to have them when the new school term starts.
I made this card for the last Challenge of the year over on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp. There is a prize up for grabs so hop on over for the details. I used my Angel digi-stamp available here (no waiting for the postie to start using this image) I coloured her with Copic Markers, Glitter, a Spica pen and an ordinary HB pencil. The photo didn't pick it up but I've added Glossy Accents to her eyes. I also used a Nestability frame, a Cuttlebug corner die, DCWV papers and a Creative Expressions snowflake stamp. I followed the sketch from Papertake Weekly, the Saturday Challenge would like to see snow, My Time to Craft has a theme of 'Yuletide Wishes', Colour Create is challenging us to use Pink, Burgundy and Ivory, The Cuttlebug Challenge has asked for Glitter and the Creative Card Crew says ' Anything goes'.
Ciao for now!

Hi Sandra. Love your angel card, she's a real cutie.
Luckily, although we had snow, school was open, all the teachers live very local so it rarly shuts even in the worst of the weather. The kids seem to enjoy their last day even though they missed playing in the snow. I think there'll be plenty of time for that over the weekend looking at the forecast.
Keep warm and enjoy the holidays.
