Flourishes Noel Challenge



It is time for a Flourishes Friday Focus.. This week the team is joining in on the Flourishes
Noel Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers in the Flourishes Member Forums.  This month the challenge is to create a card using this sketch.  


I chose the Alleluia Angel set for my Noel creation.. I wanted to create a vintage type card.  Not my usual style but I love this angel in colors other than just white. I stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.. I colored my image with the Flourishes Flesh Tone Copic Collection with a little bit of Fuchsia and Sky Collections. 


I used some Spellbinders Dies and my Grand Calibur..
Standard Circle
Grand Labels One 
Nested Pennants
