2011 CCC Week #2 - Peace

Hello and welcome to week 2 of this years Christmas Card challenges!

The challenge this week is to incorporate angels in your Christmas card.  Keep in mind that all challenges are optional and any Christmas or winter card will do.  The idea is just to help get you stocked up on your cards for next Christmas.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I have to admit that I struggled immensly with this weeks challenge.  I searched, and searched through all of my stuff and could not find one single angel in my stash.  So, I went searching on the internet and came across this adorable vintage photo.  I printed it onto textured cardstock, and sanded it ever so slightly to give it a bit more of an aged look.  I added my sentiment and a pop of red with the twine, and was done.  I love how simple and pretty this card turned out. 

So, in reality, I would have loved to use the angel pictured below for my card, but wasn't sure how that would go over.  I decided I'd just share the photo with you here instead.  Isn't he lovely? ;)

I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see what my friends have created for you today.  They're all pretty awesome.

Have a great Sunday!
