An Angel of a Sketch

Happy Tuesday morning to all of you. We, once again, have a great sketch for you this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches which I hope will inspire you to play along in our weekly challenge. We also have a TWIST this week in that we are asking you to use a fancy die. This week we are being sponsored by StampingScrapping. The fun place to shop for all your stamping and scrapping needs. Remember in order to win the fab prize, you must use BOTH the sketch and the twist.

Here is this week's sketch:



For my card, I have not quite "flipped" the image, but I have used the vertical direction rather than the horizonal. I've used a white card base and a DP from Teresa Collins (Christmas Cottage 6x6" designer pad). I matted the DP with cranberry red card. I also cut my decorative square and my corner piece from the same piece of card stock. The decorative square is Spellbinders Fleur de Lis, and the decorative corner is Angel Corner by Poppy Stamps (955, available through Dutch Paper Crafts). My image is Marci Angel by La La Land stamps, and I've colored her with Copic markers. I've used Stickles on her wings and her halo. I fussy cut her and placed her over the decorative square. My sentiment is a clear stamp which I got in a set as a freebie with a British stamp magazine that I purchased last year. I used cranberry ink.

Please take a few minutes and visit our Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to have a look at the beautiful cards the other DT members have shared this week. I know you will be inspired.

Until tomorrow, may you have a blessed day, and some happy crafting time.
