Very White Christmas Card - Three Challenges in one

Well I ended up having time yesterday to create a couple of cards as the kids were off with their mates. :-) So I checked out some challenges and have tried to combine a couple here.

I have used a white gloss card for the base then run white paper through the 'herringbone' embossing folder. I have machine stitched this to the the card. Then machine stitched on the rectangle of mulberry paper. I have added three rectangles of embossed 'swiss dots' paper with white pearl bling. The image is a free digital stamp from Back to Paper. I coloured her with my watercolour pencils and aqua pen. Added glitter to her wings. Then cut around her using my scalloped edge nestabilities which I then embossed the edge of. I added this to a circle cut from my nestabilities from pearlescent paper.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

This card is also heading off to my Craftmad Swap partner for October. We had to swap two cards with stitching of some form on the front.

Very angelic looking! Your water coloring is really good! I think working with water can be tricky on paper.
