T'was the night before Christmas ...

Another Christmas card today.  I bought this lovely Sarah Kay image - Noel Peace -  last year and never used it.  I think it is so sweet.

I have coloured this lovely little angel with Copics, and she is peeking out from behind the curtain at the night sky - hence all the crystals added to it.  My papers are from the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding range, and sadly this is the last of this particular one.  I edged all round the patterned paper with a versamark embossing pen and  dipped the edges into Starlight embossing  powder.  I have also done the same with the snowflake border towards the bottom.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I have removed the centre of the Christmas rose and replaced it with a brad.  The lush satin ribbon is an ebay purchase.  The acetate snowflakes are covered with Glamour Dust. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
