Starry Christmas Angel

I saw Hazel's Christmas challenge to spread a little Joy and Love and knew I needed to use an angel with the Good News of Christ's birth. I'm sure that the shepherds who heard that message were filled with wonder and joy at the news that the Messiah had come. That message spread both joy and God's love for mankind. What is amazing is that the message of Love and Joy is for all ages. May God's Love bless you with Joy today and always!

I used the great angel stamp from Clearly Digi Stamps, "Angel" and the sentiment "Christmas Blessings."

The star overlay was so easy to cut. I used ProPlayer dp and the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge. I set the Real dial size at 4" then matted the overlay with silver glitter paper. They were mounted on the snowflake paper of the Frosted paper pack.
