A Christmas Angel

and don't forget the blog candy sign up, too!!! :)

see, I told you today was going to be like Christmas! ;)
I have yet another card project to share with all of you.......

Today marks both new releases AND the November Club Kit over at A Day for Daisies. every image is a bit of Heaven on Earth..... truly truly.

I used the precious 'Small Angel' image on my card. (hint hint..... she is the $2 deal for this week only over at Tammy's Etsy store. race to get her for your very own!!!) papers are Echo Park Season's Greetings. her wings and halo are painted with shimmerz. I added some highlights of glitter glass to the edges of the main image. the seam tape was sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist, as was the music sheet, which actually came from a vintage hymnal I keep on the shelf above my craft desk. buttons are vintage as well.

As I was putting the card together and adding sparkly shiny bits here and there, she seemed to be telling me to remember how much God speaks to all of us through nature. the Bible references many times God's love for the flowers and birds, and how much greater is His love for us! (glory glory!) so I added some rustic touches - the pine cone pick and burlap. I love mixing these 2 seemingly different looks into one card. so oftentimes a reminder to each of us that in the midst of our everyday lives, we are surrounded by so much natural beauty but often fail to stop and see.

So for today, take a moment to listen to the song of a bird..... it just might be an angel singing a song just for YOU! :)
