Pastel blue Christmas card

What's the connection between Christmas, pastel blue and a blonde angel? If you get inspiration from the wonderful blogs, anything can be connected ;o)



The angel stamp was ready since a couple of days ago and I was waiting some snowflake die cut templates I ordered last week to prepare the embellishments. However, I couldn't wait more and I got another idea. I had some wooden stars that would go well with the angel and here it goes...

The paper ribbon is made with my favourite border punch with stars from Artemio.

I hope you like it!
