CHNC challenge 25: Christmas wings

Another week has rolled by and it's time for CHNC challenge 25: 'Christmas wings', but before I get to that I want to thank everyone who entered last week's challenge - it was great to see so many variations of using buttons on your cards.

So for challenge 25 I'd like to see some Christmas wings - in other words, I'd like you to include an angel or a fairy on your card.

This is the card I've made using a very simple angel stamp by Anita, coloured with copics. You can read further details on my regular crafting blog My Crafty Outlook here and see the sketch I used and the challenges I linked to.

As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please remember to include an angel or a fairy on your card - apart from that, anything goes.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 24 June. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on 25 June - which will be exactly six months from last Christmas and six months to next Christmas - so it really is time to think about starting to make those cards if you haven't done so yet.

Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.

If you haven't done so already, please become a follower and grab my bright pink button to post on your sidebar and help continue to spread the word about this challenge blog - thank you.

I look forward to seeing your creations.
