Angels Among Us

Hi everyone!  A new Magnolia card for you using the Angel Tilda stamp from the Nativity Collection.  I tried to do a cream/beige/gold theme as that is kind of what I think of when I think of angels.  Overall, I am really pleased with how this one came together.

I used the Copic markers in the following colors:
Robe - E 43, 42, 41, 40
Wings - Y 000, 00, 02
Halo - Y 15, 11 and blender
Hair - E 31; Y 21 and 11
Skin - E 50, 000, 00, 21 and 93 for cheeks
Ground - W 3, 1, 0 and blender
I brushed on Smooch Glitz over the wings but it doesn't show up in the photo.

Here is a close up of the coloring.

I used flowers from Wild Orchid and one other that I am not sure where they came from; seam binding ribbon from 7 Gypsies; lace and papers were just from the stash; the corner die is from Joy Crafts and the gold pearls are from Michaels Crafts.

The interior phrase is stamped and embossed with gold powder and the stamp itself was from Denami Designs, which I purchased eons ago.  I thought it was perfect for this image.

I am entering this one in a few different challenges;
7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes; 
Totally Tilda - Tilda Sitting Pretty;
Tilda's Town - Celebrate Christmas;
Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia - Winter Wonderland;
Color Me Creative - Non traditional Christmas;

I would love to hear what you think of this one.  Wish me luck with the challenges!
