Christmas slider

I made this card with a technique I have never tried before: a slider card. I might try it again. It was fun but I made it more difficult than it needed to be by trying to create it while using the sketch from Mojo Monday #228. Something a little less layered might make it easier. : ) Oh well, live and learn, right. I'm also using the Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge #59: use an angel or fairy image (and remember, it has to be a Christmas project). I found this adorable angel ornament image here and colored it with colored pencils, gold pen and glitter pen on the wings. I almost had a disaster as I left the image in my paper cutter after I had cut out something else from the sheet of paper. My littlest said, "Mama, what's this?" as she swiped the blade right across the image!!!!! Luckily, she's only 3 and didn't push down hard, so she only lightly scored through the image instead of cutting it!

Papers: DCWV

Dies/punches: Spellbinders Labels one, standard circles large, classic scalloped circles large; fiskars border punch, Oval dies from Verve.

Stamps: "Holiday Cheer" Verve's Ornamental Christmas, slider sentiment Su!'s Versatile Verses.
