Made For An Angel

Another very busy week for me, however, surprisingly, have managed to make one of the cards on my 'to do' list. Had a bit of a panic halfway through it - I ran out of double-sided tape and was frantically searching all my stash for something to use! Anyway, here's the finished card.

This card is for the daughter of one of the ladies I clean for......she's such a sweet little girl and always has a smile for us even though she's teething again!

I used one of my Greetings Farm stamps which I've had for a while but just haven't had the time to ink up. She's coloured with Promarkers, Glamour Dust on her wings, doodling around the edges, and layered on card and mirricard. Papers are from Blonde Moments with have been layered with mirricard and used my SU punch to decorate one edge of the paper. Painted a plain chipboard No 1 with acrylic paint and then added some Lil Davis shimmer paint for the sparkle. Finally, added a couple of small flowers fixed together with a heart brad and dangled a pink heart and an angel charm from them. The back of the charm has 'made for an angel' on it!

Off to do some ironing now once the kids are in bed. Hope to complete the rest of the cards later in the week once I've managed to get hold of some more double-sided tape!
