Crafty Sentiments - Christmas in September!

Time for a new Crafty Sentiments Challenge from Team B - the theme is Christmas in September!  I am using an image from the July release called Hark the Angel Sing.  She's a cutie!

I went with some lighter colors and used R000, 00, and 01 for her dress.
Her wings use W00, 0, 03.
Her shoes are R22, 24 - so are the berries with a touch of R39.
The greens - YG01, 03, G08.

The red patterned paper is mounted on off-white and my largest stitched die from Lil' Inkers helps create a border.  I used Sizzix ovals for the die cuts and inlaid them into the patterned paper.  The sentiment was a left over from last season and is from PTI.  I used some scraps of lace to and 3 jewels to finish it off.  The picture doesn't show the Wink of Stella on her wings, horn, candle and head wreath.  Pop over to the Crafty Sentiments Blog to see what the gals have for inspiration.
