Whiff of Joy sketch challenge

This week at Whiff of Joy Challenges we have a wonderful sketch to work to, done by the very talented Katharina, perfect for all the bits and pieces that we have lying around and we all have lots of those.

I have been wanting to use Confirmation Matthew but wanted to try something different (there's always one isn't there lol) so decided that Matthew was not going to be confirmed, instead he was going to sing Christmas carols, hence the snowflakes.

I found this fab Elzybells sentiment when I was mooching through my stamps and thought it was perfect for this card ... snowflakes and angels all in one verse :)
