Jazzy angel in mauve

It's that time of the year again; I need to try to make some Christmas cards as I take part in challenges, so it's not too daunting a task as December gets closer...

I'm only just in time, but I did want to use Coco's very pretty sketch on Sketch Saturday's Challenge. There seem to be lots of colour inspiration challenges this week; this is based on the photo inspiration from Dutch Dare's Challenge of a vase of flowers against wallpaper.

I've used my new angel stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured her with Copics. I've christened her the jazzy angel, she looks like she's enjoying playing the trumpet :). The image is edged with lilac ribbon, the main DP is from Artylicious and the green circles are cut from free paper that came with a magazine; the green scalloped circles are from paper that I've Glimmer Misted. The tiny sentiment is from a Penny Black clear set and the snowflakes came, I think, from a supermarket. I've coloured them with pink Copic, the were a very feeble shade of pink before :)
