New Divas by Design Challenge - 'Charming'

Good morning everyone...

Hope you are all well and we're half way to the weekend already.

I'm back today to let you know that we've got a new challenge starting today at

We're sponsored by Stamp and Create  and this week our challenge is 


So we'd like to see charms on your lovely creations.

I've used the lovely 'Ragged Angel' by Mo Manning. She's just so sweet.
This is my first Christmas card of the year. Hopefully I'll get more made than last year, which was a pitiful 4 I think!

She's been coloured with copics :-

Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E11, R30
Greens : G99, G94, G21, G20  YG91, YG93
Jacket & Boots : E44, E43, E42, E41, E39
Skirt : E11, E13, E15, E07, E09
Wings : YR000, Y000, YR20, YR21, YR24
Hair : Y21, YR23, E57, E18
Tights & Top : E30, E31, E33, E35, E39

The papers are Back to Basics Christmas by Dovecraft.
I've also used a new die and stamp from Whimsy for the sentiment, they're Holiday Carols Notables 4.

The flowers, charm, ribbon, pearls and Whimsy die and sentiment are all from The Hobby House, except the buds which are WOC. I can't remember were I got the little dove from. 

Hope you can join us this week.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :-

Crafty Sentiments - Christmas in July
