Merry Monday #229 - Angels

Hello friends.  Happy New Year and welcome back to Merry Monday where we'd love to help you complete all your Christmas cards by next December!  Sue is our hostess this week, and she'd love to see an Angel on your card.


I only have a few Angel stamps and dies, but this Impression Obsession Angel die is one of my favorites!


I still had a piece of leftover ink blended cardstock that I used for my background (Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, & Dusty Concord Distress Inks blended and then added water splatters and white acrylic paint splatters) and used a stitched oval die to cut it out.  I added the die cut Angel in black and then added the Penny Black Rejoice die cut in gold cardstock.  I used MFT's Blueprints #27 dies to cut my black scalloped rectangle and the white stitched rectangle is from Lil Inkers.  Because of the blended background piece already being done, this card was pretty QAS to put together and I have to admit I really like how it turned out!  Don't you just love it when a card comes together so quickly?!!

Please check out all the other Design Team members cards for inspiration, and then play along with us!  You will absolutely LOVE having all your cards done by early December if you start now, so hang out with us each week and we'll help you get there!  You can find all the info you need to play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
