Angelic Christmas Greetings

I found this lovely angel at The Graphics Fairy whose wings transparently reveal stars and wisemen in the background. I thought it was unique and adorable for this Christmas card. After making a lot of cards at the last minute, I'm determined to start early this year. I especially want to keep the focus on the real meaning of Christmas the gift of Christ, our Savior.

Using vintage images like this helps make a quick card. This one uses vintage Graphic45 French Country blue patterned paper and a retired scrap of pink CTMH "Jingle." One star sparkle covers the image star. The blue Bazzill scalloped rectangle is from a Spellbinders Nestability. The four CTMH clear buttons have a star-like pattern that I thought went well with the starry scene.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - A for Anything Christmas
Crafting from the Heart #4 - anything goes with buttons or pearls
Crafty Boots - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #2 - Anything Christmas
Creative Creations Challenges - anything goes
