Tilda is a Lovely Christmas Angel

My card today features Tilda as a Christmas angel, and an angel she is in her lovely green gown.  I sparkled her wings, halo and star wand with a sparkly gel pen.  I am also using my new Joy Tree stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs.  Back in September I won a gift certificate from Stamping Sisters in Christ to the ODBD store and this is one of the stamps I purchased.

I decided that it had been too long since I made an easel card and these images lent themselves nicely to this classic card shape.

This is the standup view

This is the flat view from the top
You can't see it in this picture, but I added the sparkly gel pen to the large words for maximum emphasis. 
Here's our little angle with freckles and all
