Gold for an angel

When my new CHNC challenge 120 started on Saturday I said I would be back with another 'wonderful wings' card using a stamp kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Flonz Craft. Most of the week has gone by and I've only just got round to making the card.

I've based in on the sketch given for Merry Monday 58 on Always playing with paper (I like to try and support other Christmas challenge blogs as much as possible):

The pearlised panels at the sides of the card and on which the angel image was stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail powder was from my offcuts box, as were the little pieces that were cut with my fishtail die (these are already proving to be so handy and well worth buying) The gold mirror card panel was embossed using the A4 embossing folder that came with my eBosser, which was then mounted on to some matt gold card from Create and Craft. The gold glitter strips are from Paper Cellar.

As is always the case with mirror card, this was very difficult to get a photograph, so this is the best I could do - unfortunately, it doesn't show the sheen caused by the gold embossing on the image.

This is also for:
