Black and Pink Christmas

I love black and pink together and I had this ribbon that had pink poinsettias on a black background so I decided to go with the color scheme for two cards. Here is the first using the sitting angel Tilda from the Christmas collection.


Tilda is colored with copics - R81, R83, & R85 for her clothes. The same for the poinsettias which are also from Magnolia. There are crystal stickles on her wings, frosted lace on Tilda's lace. the poinsettias have gold stickles in the center and cotton candy stickles on the flower. The green leaves are from the Tim Holtz die. The edges are punched with a fiskars border punch. The gold dew drops are from Robin's nest. 

Here is the second card using almost the same supplies and layout.


This stamp is from the retired Christmas season from the angel company. I really like this particular stamp.
Hope you have enjoyed these cards. And hopefully I will have my Christmas cards done soon.

Your cards are beautiful Peggie and I am feeling so ashamed, as I have both those border punches and have neglected to use them for a while. They make such a pretty picture on your cards... so, thanks for reminding me that I have them and for the inspiration... hugs Sharon
