Gold Christmas Angel

Hi Dreamers!
Welcome to Dreamland!  And, look at this dreamy Christmas card.  I choose  shades of yellowy creams--from soft yellow to goldy yellow for a monochromatic look.  This card was made  for the Flourishes Be Progressive Challenge. I thought the challenge seemed like a really fun idea.  Each day another element was added.

  1. Sketch
  2. Monochromatic
  3. Decorative Papers
  4. Bling
Here is my take on the Challenge:

The stamp is Alleluia Angel from Flourishes.  The Music DP is from Websters Pages, the floral from Anna Griffin.  I distressed the second layer of the scallop circle and the dry embossed floral DP with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.

Added some bling with Gold Stickles and a big gold bow.  

I am going to make several more of this design to add to my Christmas card basket.   I may down size them to make them easier to mail.  I will be back tomorrow with a Thanksgiving Card.  See you then.  Love ya.
