A Poinsettia Fruitcake Angel

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Now here is a combo for ya - pumpkin spice coffee, an angel holding fruitcake, and lots of poinsettias surrounded by plenty of glitter & bling! wow - it must be Christmas time! :D

There really wasn't a Twisted Thursday challenge over at Shirleys 2 Girls this past week - everyone was just supposed to show their Christmas cards. Well, since I had been sick recently, I never really got around to making multiples of any card. We just ended giving out a few, and they were ones I had already made. (Other than the ones David requested for Camp and the Church District office anyhow.) And I felt compelled to use a S2G image, but realized I only had 1 - this Christmas Fruitcake angel. I think she is so much fun, and the other card I made using her was a big hit with the receiver.

The paper is by K & Co. from the Evergreen collection. I love the color combo! So unique! Her wings and crown are painted with shimmerz. The plate is inked with my glitter pen. I used a gold gel pen to outline the main image on the matted & distressed piece, as well as around the dp on the card base. The Prima poinsettias have stickles in the centers as well as a bit rubbed on the card base edges and the centers of the poinsettia on the dp. Ribbon is May Arts. I am having such fun using sequins on my cards lately. They add a bit of old world/retro style.

Have a beautiful Christmas! much love to you and your families!
Jennifer
