Angel Charlotte

Hi everyone and here's my card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge of Red and Green and Friday Sketchers. I've used my Charlotte Angel (thank you T x) stamp which I stamped twice and coloured with markers, I cute out the top part of the wings from the second image and decoupaged over the main image, cut out with a nestie oval, doodled and sponged the edges with distress ink and did the same with the sentiment. The background paper is Basic Grey Figgy pudding and the bottom strip is the reverse side of the paper all layered up on dark green bazzil which I stamped with a snowflake stamp in versamark ink and then added stickles to highlight. Flowers, brad, ribbon and gems from stash. TFL

Back soon,
Chris

Take care
