Little golden angel

I can't believe how fast May went!  Today we start a new challenge in the All Dressed Up Facebook Group - this time we have the challenge set at Things with Wings.  You've actually got a lot more choice than you first think for this.

For my wings I've chosen angel wings - this image is Little Angel.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers, cut her out with a Spellbinders die, used some Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress ink from Tim Holtz.  Then I've sprinkled it with embossing enamel and glitter to make it look like angel dust.

Using a shaped card I've used one design paper from First Edition..  Both the card and the design paper have also been distressed.

Embellishments are some lace from Live and Love Crafts, some golden glitter stars and wooden holly leaves coated with glitter (both from Hobbycraft), some white poinsettias which I've had in my stash for a couple of years now and some earl gems.

The overall effect is monochromatic - hope you love my card and we hope to see you at either the Facebook Challenge or the one on the blog (anything goes with an All Dressed Up image)
