It's Coming To An End!

My time over at Paper Pretties as their Prettie Pages Girl is coming to an end...sigh. I have one more challenge for you, so be sure to check back tomorrow, and then my job there is officially over! On to new and exciting things!

I have a Paper Pretties card to share with you today. This is Angel Wings, and she is the stamp of the month for October. Isn't she adorable? I would love to use her on my Christmas cards this year...but I refuse to mass produce an image that I have to hand colour! Can you imagine how long that would take?! I guess I will save her for my scrapbook pages and my very special cards!

The base of this card is black card stock. I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder. It's a bit hard to see in the pic...but the whole base is embossed. I used my nestabilites to cut out my main image. She was coloured and blended with OMS and then her wings were given a layer of dazzling diamonds. She is really pretty and shimmery in person. :) The bottom of her gown was covered with liquid applique and then heated with my heat gun. This was one of my first times using liquid applique and I have to say, I love it! You will be seeing a lot of it here in the future, I'm sure!

The sentiment is from MFT and I used my SU! hodge podge hardware in silver for the frame. The ribbon is from one of the big chain stores....JoAnn, perhaps? I can't be certain.

Like I said, be sure to check back tomorrow for my last Prettie Pages challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today!
