Practicing Creativity

Little Red Wagon #685 and Christmas Countdown #4

My Christmas Countdown #4 coincides with this week's Little Red Wagon challenge. It's Imke's turn to choose our theme this week and she's chosen Angels. Choose an angelic Christmas creation (or other project featuring an angel) and link up with us!

I chose a long ago downloaded digital freebie from PaperCrafter magazine called Christmas Jumpers (jumpers = sweaters in the USA) for my project. Although the link for this particular digi appears to be unavailable, they do have a lot of other freebies on their site and are worth checking out. For more digi freebie links see my 10 Favorite Free Digital Stamp Sites post.

There were three jumpers in the original digi – a pudding, an angel, and a snowman – I cropped out the other two and kept the angel. Paper is Paper Addicts Happy Holidays. I used no-brand border strip and ric-rac dies in lieu of ribbon. Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops add a bit of bling. The sentiment was created with Wenny Script font.
