Light My Way

     I was lucky enough to win this beautiful stamp a while back on the AMAZING Bev Rochester's blog.  Her work with Lili of the Valley stamps is out of this world gorgeous. 
     When I saw that the new challenge for the Color challenge group at The Outlawz was silver, white and celestial blue, this stamp was the first thought that popped in my head.  So I dug it out for its initial inking and I was off.  This is another for fun card.  Actually, its another "I need more Christmas cards!" card.  LOL
     The base is a pretty Bazzill color called Whirlpool.  The mat is plain white cardstock that I ran through the Textile embossing folder.  The DP's are from MME and the image is done in Distress inks.  I couldn't get the card to photograph too well.  My light box was reflecting everything off all of that shiny silver and it made her dress looked more washed out than it is.  The stars are done in glitter and her wings are covered in Diamond Stickles.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges: 

ABC Christmas Challenge--anything Christmassy
