Snowflake angel

I was asked by a friend to make this card for his wife. I knew that she really likes the Inkadinkado angel stamp that I've been using recently so I suggested I use it on the card. I inked with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail, doing the same with random placing of some of my favourite Inkadinkado snowflake stamps. I used some Hobbycraft sheer ribbon with gems and a couple of strips of Paper Cellar glitter strips as a stopper for the upright of the easel. The sentiment stamps were random ones from my stash.

 Unfortunately, I had to take quick photos yesterday before my friend came to collect the card. I know that his wife sees what's on my blog, so I had to wait till tonight to show the card (he should have given it to her by now!). So the photos aren't wonderful (not that they are usually, anyway - lol!).

This is my card for today's facebook A card a day and also for:
