Merry Monday #153 - Angels/Cherubs





Hello friends.  Playing along with the challenge at Merry Monday this week, where we are being asked to use an angel or cherub on our Christmas card.  You'd think with the number of angels I have around my house (lots and lots!!), that I'd have lots of angel stamps too, but sadly only 2!  However, I do really like the one in Paper Smooches "A Blessed Christmas" stamp set!  I kept my card very simple and used a few Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord, & Spun Sugar) for my background, and then embossed the angel with white embossing powder.  Take a look:
 
 
The sentiment is from WPlus9.  I added a few sequins to finish it off, but I'm second guessing myself now and kinda wishing I had left them off.  But anyway, I really do like how this card came out, and I'm thinking I'm going to make a few more to ramp up my Christmas card stash! :0)

You can find all the information to play along and also check out all the other entries right here.



Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do! :0)
