Wishing Star Angel

This weeks Spotlight image at Michelle Perkett Studio is this beautiful Wishing Star Angel, she is available in Michelle's etsy store with 20% off this week! She is such a beautiful angel and I think she's perfect for a New Year card.
 I'm sorry for the dreadful photo, the background is brayered on glossy card and was a nightmare to photograph

I used Big & Juicy Waterfall inkpad to brayer the background and stamped stars from CaroLines rubber stamps on the background and embossed them with gold EP. The main image is coloured with promarkers and has lots of sakura stardust highlights for some sparkle. To finish the card off I added some gold padded stars from my stash and a big gold bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bee Crafty: New Year + digi
Polka Doodles: A wish for the new year
Everybody Art Challenge: Happy New Year
Scrapbook Sisters: Anything goes
Stamp something: Something digi
Oh Alice: Capture holiday memories or icy blue theme

Thanks for calling by today.Don't forget you still have time to enter this weeks challenge from Michelle Perkett Studios,  Jan and her lovely mermaids have set the theme of 'Anything goes' so its a nice easy one for you this week :-)
If you don't have any of Michelle's images you can grab a fabby freebie over at her groups on CDAC, SNR or PCP

Its a very grey and rainy day here today, we don't seem to have seen the sun for ages here. Hubby is going to watch the football so I'll be spending this afternoon crafting :-)
