Thankyou Earth Angel - WMSC66 & PDCC100

Earth Angel Thankyou Card

Happy Weekend everyone! Today I'm sharing a sweet little thank you card I've made using the WMSC66 sketch as my guide and the inspirational colours over at the Play Date Cafe Challenge Blog(PDCC100). This is their 100th Challenge, so Congratulations to them!!

This little lady is so cute - I stamped her a couple of times onto card and then cut & coloured her using copic markers - a skin white colour for her face, a little blush to her cheeks and an organgey shade for her shoes and bow in her hair.
I had a little lace left after cutting the border section on the left of the card, so decided to cut out a little lace pinafore and paper piece it over the top of her dress. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out and I'm hoping it ties in O.K. with the lace border and the rest of the card (although it's not strictly inline with the colours we are supposed to use :-)). I already had the butterfly shape cut out and ready to go, so I just coloured it yellow and adhered it to her back to give her some Angel Wings. As I didn't have any adhesive pearls in a suitable shade, I decided to colour some myself with a green copic marker and I think they turned out quite well in the end. I used elements from four of my beloved Waltzingmouse Stamp sets on this card and more details follow under the supplies list below.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by today!

I just love this card, there are so many really great details and so well thought out. I especially like the lace on the angels dress. I love the twine wrapped around the ribbon, very creative card.

Helen, I love all the fabric on this one. Earth Angel's dress is fantastic! I also like the green ruffle with the twine, that gorgeous gem, and that little bit of lace peeking out on the left. You nailed this!
