Christmas Card Club "Angels"

Good morning all.

A very quick visit in between wedding makes...only 10 days to go and I still need to make 40 favour boxes!!

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, it was Maureen's turn to choose the theme this time and she's asked us for "Angels". 

A very quick, simple card....stamp from La Blanche inked with brown Memento and stamped onto Kraft card. Sentiment was a magazine freebie.
Insert all done and very flat for posting.

  4. Beautiful Carol - I love the look of your creation. Funnily enough, I was playing with some of my La Blanche stamps yesterday (I have some that have 'vintage' type ladies on them - just right for the sepia look). I think this image is perfect for the kraft card base you have used..
