Christmas Angel

Today I would like to share with you my beautiful Christmas angel.  Isn’t she just precious? This is one of those cards you make and don’t want to give up; however, she is going to a wonderful home so I am happy about that.

The angel was stamped in StazOn Black then colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.  I sponged the outer edges with Brilliance Pearlescent Beige & ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.

The pretty glitter paper is from BoBunny and I thought I would pull the burgundy color as my accent.

The gold metallic bow was created with my Bow-Easy.  If you don’t have one already, I would highly recommend adding it to your craft supplies.  Perfect bows every time – I just love it!

The verse on the inside is from the Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Blessing set.  It is stamped in VersaMark with gold embossing powder.

I would like to share this poem with you.

"Angels Are Friends"

Angels are all around me
Some I cannot see
Always near or by my side
Gently helping to be my guide.
When life's obstacles get in my way
Arms reach out to push them away.
As the tears roll down my face
An Angel is here with a warm embrace.
For the times I cannot endure
Rest at ease for I have a cure
The heavens above, so kindly sends,
No need for wings, my "Angels Are Friends"

Donna this is really pretty. I need to learn to color in my images. Just have never been good at that. The inside of this card is very elegant too. Nice work.
