Sweet Sketch Vintage Christmas Card

I wanted to use this vintage image of an angel with a book. I added a rub on with a Christmas sentiment to the image. I've used papers that came together with a papercraft magazine last year. I didn't want to add too many embellishments as I wanted the lovely papers to be shown, so I just added 6 pearls, ribbon and a die cut star.
