Elegant Angel Card


I wish I could have taken a better photo of this card but it just wasn't working out tonight!  I think I have made over 100 cards this season and have failed to take photos of most of them because of my haste.  However, I loved this one so much that I had to stop and photograph it.  This is for my very elegant Aunt Gennie.  She loves victorian things and this fits the bill.  I started with a turquoise card base from my stash and then added a layer of the gorgeous Magnifique paper from CTMH.  The torn music is actually torn out of a Messiah score that I've had since college days that's been in the closet for 25 years.  I was hesitant at first but figured Handel would forgive me!

The angel is cut from a little book of images that I had on hand.  The ornament (from All The Best stamp set-CTMH) was stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder from CTMH.  The flower was brown and I just gussied it up by pressing into Versamark and embossing with the gold powder as well.  I added more glitz with a few gold rhinestones.  I need to pop her in the mail before I keep her!
