Still Christmas in July

Here's another Christmas card, using the sketch Bugaboo has for its Christmas in July challenge that is taking place all week.
The image is from Bugaboo, colored in pencils, with a little Spica pen glitter on the wings and halo and Wink of Stella on the stars.  The larger piece of purple paper is a snippet of some alcohol ink marbling, and the punched border is another snippet. Gold-flecked twine is wrapped around the top and bottom of the marbled paper. The sentiment is a little wonky, but let's call it a joyful angle.

This card is for these challenges
Catch the Bug Christmas in July -- day 2, sketch
Winter Wonderland -- Make it Cute
Pixie's Snippet Playground #237 -- use Snippets
Holly Jolly Christmas #76 -- inspired by a song (Angels We have Heard On High)
