A Joyful Christmas Angel

   I do believe this is my first Christmas card post! I got new stamps. Had to try them out! The angel, sentiment and music stamps are from Tim's Joyful Song set. The flourish at the top is also Tim's (can't remember the set it's from at the moment!).
   For the background, I used 3 Distress Ink blues on white cs; Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood. I did the Wrinkle Free Distress Ink technique from Tim's book, "Compendium Of Curiosities". This is a "go-to" technique for me. I use it all the time. The results are always different! 
  Stamped the background with the music stamp in the 3 blue inks, then inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo and tore the bottom. Glued onto black cs and attached that beautiful gold ribbon (from Michael's) on bottom. I stamped the angel onto white cs and then glued her on to Grungepaper; cut her out and chalked her. Did I tell you how much I LOVE chalk?! Popped her up with foam squares.
  Stamped sentiment and highlighted "here and there" with gold glitter pen & added bling to the corner flourishes. Added Platinum Stickles to her wings and from her hand to the sentiment.
