One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday ~ Angel



It seems I have a limited amount of angel stamps...I chose the Paper Smooches set called:  A Blessed Christmas.
I actually made three cards...here is the one I am submitting to The Merry Monday Angel Challenge 
and it is actually the third card I made!

I first found a sketch and thought that would be fun and I could use some of my coveted pattern paper:
 And although this is nice, I really do like a more clean and simple look to my cards (how am I ever going to use all my wonderful designer paper??)
Then I made this card:
when I laid it out I knew it needed something in the corners, so I tried a few different things and settled on some holly sprigs...still not quite what I was looking for...so then I thought of stars...YES!!  that is so heavenly, why didn't I think of that first?

 
stamps:  Paper Smooches: A Blessed Christmas, and stars are from Mama Elephant: Make a Wish, the holly is from PTI Tinsel & Tags Sprigs
gold thread
die:  MFT stitched square mat
paper:  MME: A Merry Little Christmas
Have a great weekend friends!
