Merry Monday Challenge #153

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday!

Today we have a new challenge over at Merry Monday! Lori is our hostess this week, so let's get to it!



I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this challenge and then I remembered I picked up this Darice Embossing Folder at the last Heirloom Stamp Show in October! It was perfect!




This card was a difficult one to photograph since it has shiny gold paper on it. I think the angel is very pretty on it's own so I just added a quick sentiment, some gold trimmed burgundy ribbon and a couple gold beads! It's very pretty in real life!


Merry Monday Challenge #153 Card:

Stamps: Sentiment from Hero Arts
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Neenah White, Shiny Gold Paper
Accessories: Darice Angel Embossing Folder, Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Circle & Scallop Punches, Gold Trimmed Burgundy Ribbon, Gold Beads, Glue Dot, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other ladies have created this week! So many gorgeous "angel" idea's! Can't wait to see what you create!

That's all for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
~Wendy

Love, love, love this embossed angel, Wendy! I hadn't seen it before and it's on my list now! I love how you kept it simple and I'm impressed with your photography skills. Capturing the embossing and the metallic edges is a real challenge and you whipped it! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Perfect embossing folder for this challenge! And a wonderful card - the white space with its gorgeous texture is beautifully framed with the gold edges.
