Framed Christmas in August

I was inspired by the challenge posted at SplitCoastStampers by my friend, Judy.  The "Technique Lovers' Challenge #442" was to create an external frame on a card with the image inside.

Since it is never too early to start on Christmas cards... Here is my card: (I forgot to photograph the inside)
The main image ("Little Angel") was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic and Shin Han Markers.  The ornaments, star, and halo were embellished with Stickles. The star, halo and candle flames were embellished with Judikins Diamond Glaze.

The background is "Floral Damask" and is stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Iced Spruce (a light green/gray)

Then sentiment is "Peace on Earth" stamped over the background stamp "Silent Night".

All stamps are from
