Musical Christmas

Time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and this month's theme is Cute and Cuddly with Non-traditional colours.  Our sponsors are Flat Friends who have generously given four of their cute digis to give to the winner.  So, on to the challenge!
I used Lili of the Valley's Musical Christmas stamp and I think these little angels are cute and cuddly.  The sentiments are from Paper Smooches Joyful Greetings set.  I may have gone a bit overboard with the Frantage...maybe just a bit!  My friend Kelly told me about this stuff and I love it but I'm going to have to ease up on how much I use or I will go broke buying it.  Fabulous product though and I will be using it on lots of upcoming projects.
Copic Colours:
Dresses:  R85, R83, R81, R00
Hair:  E35, Y32, YR23;  E25, E21, E13, E11, R22
I then added some Stardust Stickles to the wings, dresses and stars.
Challenges:
ABC - O is for Open (anything goes)
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Crafting Muskateers - use a stamped image
