costumed angel - HYCCT1131

Photo Details
Poster: PH in VA

 Lydia came up with a very creative Hope You Can Cling To challenge idea - to create a card unlike your usual crafting style. So I had to think about things I very rarely use.

First on that list was glitter.

Next was a person lacking facial features. I didn't have time to order any mouthless Tilda stamps but this angel digital image fit the bill. (I'm not going to quibble about whether angels really are people.)

Then came sheer ribbon, tied into a puffy triple-looped bow.

The uber-feminine, almost vintage looking floral print in pinks and purples was another must-have for this card.

I do occasionally use rhinestones, but I added some on here too for good measure.

It's also very rare that I create a card without some sort of sentiment on the front.

And here it is - my "costumed" card. :) Thanks for taking a closer look at it! Comments are welcome.

The glittery wings are fab. Laughing at you not having time to order a faceless Magnolia are other - would you really? These challenges have been great for using that paper - how did I ever end up with two pads of it!
