Angel Valentine's Card

Hello Crafters!
We have a nice sunny morning here in Michigan. Very cold though. My Husband, Don is still in the hospital. I am hoping and praying that He will be home soon. Please keep us in your prayers!
Today, I have a Stampsmith Design Team card for you. I used the "Little Angel (Large)" stamp that is available in the Stampsmith Shop. I am working on Valentine's Day cards and this will be sent to someone. Not sure who yet. LOL.

I stamped the Angel on glossy white cs with black dye ink. I used a Faux Linen technique to create the roses paper. The roses were stamp with an Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card large stamp. The dp at the bottom of the card is from K & Company. I added red velvet, tulle, sheer ribbon, and a metal brad for accents. I wrapped a strip of tulle about 2 inches wide around the card several times and secured it on the inside. The ribbon is tied around the card and knotted on the front. Here are some detail photos.

I also photographed the inside. I still have to add the Valentine's sentiment. And while I was making the Linen background paper, I decided to make a couple RAK cards too. I stamped the angel directly onto the Faux linen paper with the two smaller cards. I like how that looks too and will do that again.

You can really see the line effect is this detail photo of one of the smaller cards.

And finally, a few challenges for Angel Valentine's:

Simon Says Stamp: Bingo- I used Brads, Flowers, and Ribbon.
