Embossed Angels

I dug deep into the stash for this card. The angels are one of the first Christmas stamps I ever purchased; the swirl stamp on the watercolored strip is equally as old, and the acrylic blocks with the letters on them can't be much newer.  (Yes, they do look a little yellowed, though I feel like they always had that look.)

The angels are gold embossed and colored with pencils (robes) and Wink of Stella (wings), with a little gold glitter on the stars. For the strip, the swirls were white-embossed, and  then I did a watercolor wash using the same three colors as the robes. (the angels and their colors were inspired by the Victorine Originals mood board.)

This card is for these challenges:
Rudolph Days -- Christmas
Victorine Stamps #9 -- on wings
ABC Christmas -- P is for people (I hope angels qualify) 
Word Art Wednesday #296 -- anything goes
