Wild Orchid Challenge - Week 33

I am getting back into the swing now and am managing to make more cards. I don't know if it is all the drugs, the physio or if I am just getting used to working around things I can not do. But whatever it is I am grateful that at last I can do more than just watch TV all day!

The Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge this week is 'Make is Sparkle with Stars' and I have made the above card to enter. I am loving the new LOTV stamps and this is yet another one 'Three Little Angels', however these little cuties look as though they could be a wee bit naughty on the quiet.

I coloured the image with Flexmarkers and Promarkers and distressed the edge with gold ink. I added little star gems to their halo's rather than colouring them but they have not shown up too well in this photo. the backing paper is from the Memory Box 'Yuletide' collection and the sentiment is from Craftworks Crafts. The tree is cut using a Marianne Die and I have embellished it with flatback gems from my stash. The pink and gold ribbons and the pink star brads are also from my stash.

All the flowers and the gold berries are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The large Hellebore started life as a plain white but I took it apart, glittered the petals and put it back together again. The Carnations have a touch of pink glitter on the very tip of their petals but again the glitter has not shown up too well in the photo.

Thank you for stopping by and if you have a minute to leave a comment it will be truly appreciated.
