Fairies & Angels at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, my treasured friends! I hope you're having a lovely week. :o)

It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and this time it's all about Fairies and Angels. I opted for a Christmas card with my favorite angel paper. :o) I was very short on time and my lingering arm issue has been painful, but I'm grateful I was able to make a little something yesterday. ♥︎
My background papers are from Pion Design's Silent Night collection, which I combined with some of my favorite trims and pearls from Live & Love Crafts. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Christmas Chalkboard (no longer produced) and the pretty snowflake is a Magnolia die.
The pretty poinsettia is a Cheery Lynn Designs die, which has been sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage and centered with Frosted Berries. My fancy 'snow drift' was made with the Marianne Design Fancy Edge die, which is covered in Glamour Dust (crystal and gold). The Memory Box Frosted Spruce Tree is accented with Polar White Flower Soft. My base was made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles, using Pion's Palette Grey 1.

Be sure to check out the inspiration from my sweet and talented teamies. ♥︎ Thank you for fluttering on by! Have a beautiful day. :o)

  21. Hi, Karen! I came back this morning to see if my google comment "took" a few days ago. and it didn't. LOL I have been posting generally from my iPhone and for some reason, a few of the blogs require a 2nd login, and I lose my comment at that time - Yikes! I'm sure it is a user problem, but really? LOL I was so touched by this design with the pleated tulle and lovely, soft, heavenly layers. Those vintage angels are perfect with all your special touches. I hope your arm is soon feeling improved, and not so painful. hugs, de
