Silent Night Angel

Good Morning!
I finally had the chance to ink up one of my new stamps yesterday morning, trying to find the time to sit and colour the past fortnight has been a little sparce! 
This super sweet stamp is from Lili of the Valley, along with my DT Goodies that I received over the recent weeks I couldn't help purchasing some of the stamp sets, this stamp is from one of them! After colouring I added some Stickles glitter to 4 of the stars in the image but the camera didn't pick it up too well unfortunately.

A Unicorn Christmas with Lili of the Valley

Good Morning!
I have a Christmas card with a difference for you all today, I have used a brand new Art Sheet image by Lili of the Valley that isn't actually a dedicated Christmas sheet. However seeing as there seems to be a trend with Unicorns as Christmas decorations this year I thought ... well why not!
The image is from the Art Sheet 'Enchanted Unicorns' and the papers are also new from Lili of the Valley.


INGREDIENTS -
Lili of the Valley 'Enchanted Unicorns' Art Sheet
Lili of the Valley Sentiment Stamp & 'Watercolour Dots' Paper Dots
Doodlebug Sprinkles & Papermania Glitter Dome Stickers
Cheesecloth, Wooden Snowflake, Paper Doily & Glitter Organza Ribbon
Assorted Flowers & Berries

Thanks for stopping by!
