Vintage Angel

This card came about completely for the Our Creative Corner - Very Vintage Christmas challenge. You must use neutrals, and I hope my little splashes of colour are ok - they are so muted. 


Supplies: papers from MME; clip art angel from Crafty Secrets; angel sticker from PSX; key from Making Memories;  lace & ribbon from stash; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; crochet mat by me



I stitched along the edge of the ribbon so that I could gather it, and then attached it with double-sided tape. The Faith angel is adhered with foam tape, and rests on an angle. My favourite favourite favourite element is the key, though. LOVE it. 

This challenge runs through the 28th, so lots of time to join!
xoxo,
Jessi

Such elegance, love the added key... definitely a hoarding embellie for me, aren't you clever putting it on a card (who woulda thought).
