Joyous angels



This ended up being a kind of girly looking Christmas card, but I like it.  The angels are silver-embossed on a snippet of navy cardstock that has specks of white in it (so not that is not random EP). The blue strip in the middle is a wax resist where you make by embossing the wax paper, then ironing it on the card stock, and then applying ink. The card has a ton of sparkle with the gems and the silver shimmer paper layer. The shimmer paper is also a snippet -- it was too small, so I cut it and used part above and part below the blue strip.
The layout for this is the Catch the Bug Stella Says Sketch #318.  The awesome lace along the bottom is from The Ribbon Girl.
