Angel Wishes

A first for me as I've managed to make a card that fits 4 different challenges. The first is the sketch for Just Us Girls Challenge 6 which I've used as the layout for the card. The second is the latest Sophisticat Challenge, the theme of which is Wings and the third is Papertake Weekly with the theme of something digital and sparkle. The fourth comes courtesy of the lovely Avril Ann whom I know via Sophisticat who kindly told me about Tuesday Taggers, a challenge blog where she's also on the DT and the theme is no patterned papers. This is right up my street as you know I almost always make my own being a bit of a DIY fanatic-after all it's so much more fun!!!

Ingredients Used:
Hero Arts Real Pine stamp H2887
Dezinaworld Digital Collage Image: Angels
Green and White Parchment card-Southfield Stationers
Versacolor Inks: Evergreen, Green Tea
Distress Ink: Peeled Paint
Embossing Powder: Tarnished Gold, Crystal
Prima Paper Flowers
Jewels and Gold Braid
The main background paper is stamped in Green Tea and sponged with Peeled Paint on white parchment card. The rectangular bar is stamped and embossed with the gold then sponged with Green Tea. The circle is green parchment card stamped with the same pine in Evergreen and embossed with Crystal powder for sparkle.
The card was assembled to the sketch with the cut out angel and jewels added to the flower centres. A greeting finished it off.

Hi Fliss - another beautiful card, and I love the pinks and greens together. Beautiful image too.
Thanks for your message - would have e-mailed you but can't find your e-mail addy. Just wanted to say- no worries about the award thingy - I feel exactly the same. I've now moved the details (minus the questionnaire) into my side-bar as it almost filled the page!!
Hugs, Sylvia xx
