Gloooooorooroooroor-ria in excelsis Deo

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing ore the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

That is exactly what I was singing when I made this card. This sweet Poinsettia Princess was another image released on Thursday by Sweet N Sassy Digis. Isn't she the sweetest? When I saw this image it reminded me of the children in a Christmas pagent at church with their little face beeming as they waved to mom and dad in the audience. Now what got me to singing this particular song was the shawl on the girl's shoulders reminded me of angel wings.

For my card I used last year's Basic Grey Christmas designer paper and matted that on some red, kraft, and white cardstock. I used my EK success punch to create the side border in the image and then attached a prima poinsettia flower with a Basic Grey brad center. The image was colored up with copics and her dress, shawl, and collar have diamond stickles on it.

I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy all the festivities with friends and family that this month normally brings. Thanks for stopping by.
