It was hard not to…

…get inspired by this picture for this week’s challenge from the Shabby Tea Room
I decided to make another Christmas card, using the beautiful stamp “Angel’s Grace” that I was lucky enough to win in Belles n’ Whistles Advent Calendar Candy last year. Hmmm…sounds like an eternity ago when you write it like that, though it was only last month. 😀 At first I colored her dress in brown, but it didn’t match the papers as well as I had thought, why I had another go with green instead. Now the dress might be a little bit too much on the dark side; this tend to happen to me while I’m practicing coloring folds. Anywho, here’s the card:
