Hi, and welcome!
How are you, on this cold and blustery day? Another looooong bout of torrential rain for we Brits, today, and that wind certainly has teeth...hahaaa!
Have you ever met an angel? I most certainly have......some of them were strangers, and others came in the guise of my family or friends......but, angels they most certainly were!
I do, indeed, believe in angels.....whether they walk the earth, or come straight from heaven.....I know that they exist.
This week's challenge at
is giving us a chance to let our hearts soar by creating a card that includes an angel....plus a scripture or uplifting sentiment (on the front OR the inside).
Our Design Team was given some beautiful images to play with from this week's sponsor
Our randomly drawn winner will get to choose one of the gorgeous images that have been used by our team this week.
I chose this beautiful Charity Angel to be the focus of my card...........
I used a white card base and a piece of light tan paper for the background....layered on three panels of K&Co. papers which I hand-stitched and edged with ink............
I love this big X-cut nesting label shape......I embossed the white card with a Cuttlebug Swirls folder, and cut a smaller label from some of the K&Co. paper.........I coloured the beautiful angel with Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs. I used a Creatables die to cut out the image, but miscalculated the size of the image....oops.....which left a row of holes along the bottom of the dress! Out came a length of yellow organza ribbon which was threaded through the holes.....sorted!
The gorgeous poinsettia is from a MCS CD from last year.......printed, cut out, inked and shaped........the centre was made with a tiny flower punch (two) and a yellow gem........love it!
I coloured the stars on the beautiful sentiment (freebie) and used a snowflake punch on the side, and also rounded the corners......I then used a scrap of sequin waste underneath for a bit of subdued sparkle......it's a Christmas card, after all....hahaaa........
I rather like this pretty card.
Please pop over to see some truly beautiful angels cards, created by our Design Team .....there's definitely a feeling of Christmas in the air......heehee!
Please remember that this is a CARD challenge blog.........and have fun!
