I'm thrilled to have made some time to play with this wonderful child angel digital image recently released by Crafts and Me. This sweet Sara Burrier image is named Blessed.
This photo shows my Copic-filled Blessed image . . . Note how the cooler toned wings appear further back while the warm toned banner looks like it's closer.
I layered some Little Yellow Bicycle cardstock and Festive Floral patterned paper from their Christmas Magic Collection. Martha Stewart's Rings border punch adds a dainty touch to the bottom of the solid matting. Spellbinders scalloped rectangles shape my Blessed image and Hero Arts sentiment as shown on the card base . . .
A Memory Box Holly Vine die cut adds a dimensional border. Punch Bunch large holly leaves and several sizes of Kikyou form my handmade flowers.
I've layered a decorative ribbon bow on top of a lace bow. I don't care for that bulkiness and will likely not do that again.
Here's a view of my card front . . .
Finally, this side view shows my completed card using Sara Burrier's Blessed digital image . . .
I've added this lovely child angel image to this Christmas card. She'll also make a wonderful image for a Christening card or birth announcement. Whenever you want to express that you're blessed for knowing someone or reminding them that they're blessed, this sweet image will easily convey such a message. Ooo . . . have I got plans for her . . .
