A Wing And A Prayer

     Welcome fellow peeps! Today for My Cricut Craft Room's Design Team we were asked to create a card in honor of Guardian Angels so we had to use either an angel or add wings to our project. One of my twin daughters loves angels and since her Birthday is coming up real soon I decided to make her this card. Happy Birthday Christine!!!
     Before I proceed I wanted to be sure you knew Erica's team has been turning pink in honor of Breast cancer Awareness Month. We will all be and have been "dressed" in pink until October 15th. Please make sure you are screened for this disease. A simple mammography and monthly breast exams CAN save your life. So are you ready for my card? Of course you are,lol.
     Do I have your attention? Good!!! To make this card I used Recollections Cherry Blossoms for my background paper and Wild Card. This tri fold card is on page 32 and I cut it @ 4" in both blackout and the main card images. This is a beautiful base for any type of card you are making. I spot adhered the 2 layers with my ATG gun.
     I love this winged heart image I found in Imagine Baby Boutique. You can find it on page 3 and I cut it @ 1.7". I cut the images first as combined layers and then separate so I could use a set of wings for some dimension and the heart and crown to add dimension as well. I added Thistle stickles to the wings and Star Dust stickles to the crown.I used some Milled Lavender ink to the edge of the heart and added pop dots to the crown.
     I love the softness of this card so I decided to use some feathers. It seemed so appropriate with the wings. All I had left to do was to add some pink eyelets and ribbon. I also thought it would be great to add a charm. Even though my daughter and her husband live on the west coast, they are both always in our hearts.
     Sorry but I am not sure which stamp company this is from. I also want to show you what I did with a leftover layer from the BB image:
I added it to the inside. I will stamp a birthday greeting on this before sending it out.
     If you want to get any of these products that I used for this project then you will certainly want to check out Erica's Store. She has some great prices on carts as well as other supplies.
     Want to see more angel/wing inspiration? Then it's time you head back to My Cricut Craft Room and see what the rest of the team has to share. I hope you have a wonderful week!
