Heavenly Glow!

I adore this image---It is just so sweet. I was a bit intimidated about using it....It is difficult to do such an amazing scene justice!

I thought that gold would be the best color to showcase this image---and so I used brushed gold cardstock for the base and layers, gold Krylon webbing spray for the white background, gold embossing powder for the flourishes, metallic gold rub-on paste to add gold around the circle, gold Zigpainty for the wings and gold eyelets to thread the ribbon through...so...

Even if I didn't do the image justice.....I think you can see the heavenly glow! lol!

All stamps used on this card can be found at Stamper's Dream: Manger Kisses (Stampendous!) currently out of stock; Classic Flourish (Memory Box).

Materials used: Stamps-Manger Kisses (Stampendous!), Classic Flourish (Memory Box); cardstock-white, brushed gold (Stampin' Up!); designer paper-Floral (Fancy Pants); Prismacolor Pencils; Odorless Mineral Spirits (Gina K Designs); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Nestability circle dies (Spellbinders); Spellbinders Shapeabilities (corner pieces); gold webbing spray (Krylon);sheer ribbon (May Arts); gold embossing powder (SU!); versamark; heat tool; Metallic gold rub-on paste (Gina K Designs); gold Zigpainty pen; gold eyelets (Paper Studio); Cropadile; dimensionals (SU!).

WOWOWOWOWOWSERS! This is wonderful! Gold is so appropriate and IS FOR SURE making a come-back over the pewter and copper finishes, too. Do you notice it is being used more often now than over the past 5 years, too?

Great Job! Have an enjoyable weekend with the kiddos! HUGS, Nicole
