Jingle Belles : Visions of Sugar Plums

Hello Stampers! I wanted to share with you some pretty exciting news.... I was the lucky gal selected to be a future Guest Star on Jingle Belles!!!!! But right now, I am enjoying this week's prompt brought to us by the talented Amanada Profumo ( & her kids ,too!!!). We have a photo prompt this week:

We are invited to use this pic as a photo inspiration. I was drawn to those lovely hues of purple, which is not a color I would  not traditionally pick for my Christmas cards. I found this cute little digi stamp ( I think they are becoming my favorite right now!!!) and the little angel seemed a perfect match for this week's prompt!

I colored the angel with SU markers and used an aquapen to blend the colors together. I also colored my taffeta ribbon to match. The ornamnet is blinged witha little Cosmo Glitter and watercolored,too. The swirly snowflake dp was discovered in a really old satsh of patterned papers and I'm glad I found a use for it!!! I don't know if you can tell from the photo ( sorry it's  dark ) but the purple mat behind the angel is  sprayed with Marshmellow Glimmer Mist.
I wasn't sure if I would have time to get this week's challenge done , but I'm glad I did!!! I love how JB gets me thinking outside the box!!!!

Anyhoo.... thanks for stopping by my little blog!! Have a great week!!!!
