SRU Angel Challenge

The challenge at Stamps R Us beginning today and lasting for three weeks instead of our normal two weeks this go round, is themed Angels.  Our sponsor, A Day for Daisies, so graciously gave us some precious images to work with.  Check out the Stamps R Us blog and look at all the wonderful creations by the DT.  The winner of this challenge will receive a fabulous prize package from our sponsor.

This was a really hard challenge for me.  If you've been following my blog for a while you know I don't do the sweet and girly type cards just real well.  But.....I gave it the "old college try" and here's what you get!

This isn't your normal Christmas tree but if you have the right spirit of Christmas, any tree will do.  I like the little flowers she's hanging on here.  Ok, so here's what I did with the card......I used some Bashful Blue and some unknown pink DP that I had - stitched around the edges of the pink - framed the image using a nestie - added a couple of snowflakes and the ribbon!  I also popped up the wings and added some glitter to them too. 

I'll enter this in the challenges at Sweet Stampin Challenge (things with wings) and Dutch Dare Card Challenges (winged things).

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and enter the Stamps R Us Challenge.

Lynn,For someone who does not do "girly" you did all right, great in fact. You are so right about the tree. In spirit any tree will do. Great coloring and I love your sky. Your snowflakes and ribbon add a nice touch of sweetness. Thanks for sharing. Hope all is well with you.
