2015 Christmas Card #10

To avoid the last minute stress in December I try and make Christmas cards throughout the year. I should make an average of 3 cards a month to cover my needs, and with this card my stash of Christmas cards now counts 10.
This time I was inspired by Mynnette's card, choosing an image with wings and picking inspiration from the layout.
I paper pieced the image, made with a stamp from Marianne, and cut it with my Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die. I also used a snowflake die and a stitched border die. The sentiment tag is from LOTV.

This card is for these challenges:
1) CASE-ing Christmas - CASE #18
2) Cut it Up - #70 Paper Piecing
3) Sparkles Forum Christmas - # 52 Tag, you're It!
