An angelic card

Today's challenge is our final one for this year over at Stamps R Us challenges, it lasts for 3 weeks instead of 2, so the deadline for your entries to be submitted is New Years Day.

Our theme this time is 'Angels' and our sponsor for this challenge is A Day For Daisies where you can find lots of beautiful angel images.
Tammy very kindly gave the design team images to use, I chose 'Love Angel'

I started by punching the 2 sides of the front of a white card blank usinga xcut 'sparkler' border punch. I then added a pice of pale blue gingham backing paper.
The image was coloured with promarkers. I used the same punch on the sides of the card to replicate the card base, then added a little SU dazzling diamonds glitter to her wings and halo.
Finally, I added some white ribbon tied into bows above and below the image.

My fellow teamies have produced the most beautiful, angelic cards this week, please take a look, they are sure to inspire you to take part in our challenge.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin - things with wings
Prairie Fairy Fridays - beat the winter blues
