And the angels sang...

Ah, Monday... here you are again.
Hey guys, so are you ready to get back into the swing of another week? I'm feeling pretty upbeat and positive for a Monday morning and I hope that means good things for the rest of the week. Remember that MIA paper pad that I was searching high and low for? Well after giving up hope yesterday, I found it in the backseat of the car of all places! Sheesh! At least now I can stop obsessing about it, LOL! ;)

I made my card for today using one of the Kraftin' Kimmie angels that I had colored up from a previous "white" video that I did, which can be found here or on Color Me Copic. Because white has a tendency to reflect whatever color surrounds it, I used very light pinks to color Aurelia knowing that I would be pairing her up with this pink snowflake paper from October Afternoon. Talk about a very girly looking Christmas card, but instead of fighting it I ran with the look. Throw on some glittery cardstock, sparkly twine and a pretty handmade stick pin that my November Secret Sister, Kim, made me and it was done!

I'm also entering this one into the open challenge over at Flutter By this week. It's been awhile since I've played along and this time of year is the perfect excuse to add angels into the fluttery mix. :)

And now I must bid you adieu as I go get ready for work.
