Sweet Angel

If I had to have a favourite stamp, and only keep 1 stamp, it would have to be Rosie, I just love her.  I stamped her onto SU crumb cake kraft cardstock and then coloured her using my pens.  I glamour dusted her wings and bits of her dress and hair.  The tulle was quite wide, so I folded it half and stitched it, adding ruffles as I went along.  I added some seam binding over the top to hide the stitching.  The dp was also stitched.  I added some cheesecloth and a bow, and die cut and punched some snowflakes.  Finally a pearl swirl and pearls to the centres of the snowflakes. 

I haven't added a sentiment yet - can't decide who to send it to ... if its one of my nieces I'll use some of the LOTV Christmas tag sentiments ... if its for a grown up I'll probably put a Craftwork Cards sentiment on it.  I really ought to start writing my cards as we have so many to send.

Colouring medium: promarkers
Papers: Bo Bunny
Embellishments: seam binding, tulle, cheesecloth, pearls, glamour dust
Tools: Snowflake punches, Marianne Creatible snowflake die
