Merry Monday #55 My favourite angel

Hello there,
have you ever on first sight knew you just had to have a certain stamp? Well I felt that way the first time I saw this angel (luckily enough I love the rest of the stamp set too!). This is her first outing this year but I'm sure it won't be the last.  The reason she came out was this weeks Merry Monday challenge is a tic tac toe challenge and one of the squares was angel. I decided to go straight through the middle - die cuts + paper piercing + angel.

Somehow blue seemed to be the way to go so I dug through my DSP stash till I found something that said christmas/angel to me. Add a touch of paper piercing and faux stitching, some shine with embossing and crystal effects and finished it all off with some ribbon and twine. That pretty much sums it up. The next few weeks are going to be busy so not sure I'll get the chance to make any christmas cards. If not once things level out I'll try and add to my stash.

Thanks for visiting,
