An Angel for Merry Monday

A new year of Christmas challenges has begun at Merry Monday.  First up is "angels":

I have a couple of angel stamps but my favourite is the one I chose to use here:

I made a background by sprinklng blue brushos on coated cs and spritzing with water.  When dry, I stamped and heat embossed both angel and sentiment.  I popped the panel up on fun foam.

Because the angel is playing an instrument, I used a song title as my sentiment and a musical score embossing folder for my background.

Love getting my Christmas cards made throughout the year, thanks to challenges like Merry Monday!

Stamps - Deep Red angel, PTI sentiment
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black
Paper - white cs, coated cs
Size - A2
Accessories - blue brushos, Darice embossing folder, clear embossing powder, fun foam
