Christmas Angel - Praying


What what a rotten day, it is today - chucking it down with rain and doesn't look like it's going to stop either and H is supposed to be going on a Beaver farm walk and sausage sizzle too !!, yesterday was lots better we went to an Autumn Countryside Show at the 'Weald And Downland Museum' and whilst there we saw none other than 'Lord Crawley' - Hugh Bonneville.

I thought it i would make a Christmas card using some very old pastel papers they are K & Co - 'Swell Noel' and i've teamed it up with an LOTV stamp, round the edge of the image i stamped in Versamark, using the stamp PB - 'Snow Scroll', i then used Crystal embossing powder, the sentiment is LOTV and the snowflakes are MB - 'Precious Snowflakes'.
