MMSC30 Wings and Things

This is my entry for this weeks MMSC30 Sketch Challenge at Midnight Madness. This is an image from one of my favorite stamp companies "Darcie's". Isn't she cute!!!

I hand embroidered the eyelash yarn around the scallop spellbinders die cut. All of the panels are stitched and stickled...my favorite embellishment!!! This paper is so pretty. I actually found this the other day when looking for something else. Many years ago I used to belong to the "Boyds Collector's Forum" on the Internet. We used to have Secret Sister's and Swap's and this paper I received from one of my fellow Boyd's lover.I love this sweet Angel so much, I could not resist putting her inside the card. I used a verse from the Bible for my sentiment.
