The Anti-Christmas Angel

Thanks for stopping by the Guild Hall today. Don't mind those feathers there - I'm just finishing cleaning up from defeating an angel that unexpectedly apparated in the Guild Hall, trying to ruin our Christmas crafting session. That may seem like an unexpected scenario...an angel trying to ruin Christmas spirit, but alas, this was no ordinary angel. This was an Anti-Christmas Angel. I had heard whispers of their existence at the tavern last holiday season, but had not encountered one until today. The Lady Commander of Copics, Guardian of Glitter and I were able to use a triple tech and some fancy die rolls to destroy him, saving our Christmas crafting session.
This image was the combination of three different stamps. The guy is "Jack" from The Greeting Farm's Creepin Kit. His wings were cut from the "Angelboy" Stampotique stamp and the hat is from the Dylusions "Christmas Accessories" set. All were coloured with Prismacolors, cut out and glued together to form a new image. The green paper was stamped with the bell stamp from the Tim Holtz "Christmas Memories" set using Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. I ran the white blobby thing through the Cuttlebug and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist to make it all shimmery. This earned my +59 glitter exp points. The sentiment came from the Dylusions "Christmas Words" set, which has incidentally quickly become my favourite. I foresee a lot of "sassy" Christmas cards this year! 
The inside I stamped some bells and snowflakes from a Recollections brand Christmas stamp set. The sentiment came from the Echo Park "Holly Jolly Christmas" set.
Used the same images on the envelope to make it all matchy match.

This Anti-Christmas spirit card will be entered into the following challenges:
Stampotique Designers Challenge 64: Combining Stamps
The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge: Bright Colors
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Put a stamp on it
Cardz TV Stamps Design Team Challenge #14: Happy Holidays ~ Pick One!

I'm still finding feathers all over the place from that darned evil angel. I'll have to visit the local mage and see if he is able to cast an anti-apparating spell on the Guild Hall so this doesn't happen again.
