Christmas Angel

The current Merry Monday challenge is 'Angels or Cherubs'.  I've upcycled this cute angel from one of the Christmas cards I received last year.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Card: Gold mirri and white hammer
Other:  Upcycled card, Wink of Stella, peel-off sentiment and stars

I layered a square of white hammered card onto gold mirri and attached it to the card front.   The angel image was trimmed to size so it would fit in the lower corner of the card, this was then attached with foam tape.  I added the 'Noel' peel-off before finishing the card with a Wink of Stella on the angel's dress and wings.

Since uploading the card to the Merry Monday challenge, I've bought some gold star peel-offs and added them to the card which I think adds the finishing touch.

What a sweet card! I enjoy upcycling cards too - haven't done it lately but should dig out my stash again - I save all the old cards I've received - they really come in handy! Your peel-off sentiment is a nice touch!
