You're an angel

It's Thursday and time for an OLDIE BUT GOODIE over at Catch the Bug and a new challenge over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday. This week there's no twist - a plain ad easy "ANYTHING GOES".

I colored the image using Promarkers and silver and gold metallic gel pens. The sentiment (you're an angel) is heat embossed using gold EP.
The background paper is embossed.
As for embellies I kept it simple, adding just 3 sequins and stitching with a metallic gold thread around the edges.

This card is also for these challenges:
House of Cards - Metallics
Get Creative Challenges - No Printed Papers
Deep Ocean Challenge - #111 - For The Boys
Cards und More - # 139 Cards for Men

Simply and cute, very lovely card!! This little angel on the anchor is really sweet coloured with neutral markers and gel pens. Your metallic embossed background is stunning!! Love the sequins! Also Kitty use always sequins instead of pearls. I think they are more simple and elegant with their sparkling!

Oh my gosh!! I've been sick like nobodies business and I've missed a few of your posts. I just started breathing through both nostrils, at the same time, (I know right? YEAH ME!) and so I finally feel like getting on the internet and looking around. You inspire me so so much! Your cards are just fabulous!! Each one tells an incredible story with so much activity and animation.
Big hugs to you Pia.

I happen to love angels nearly as much as cardinals, so this one is particularly sweet to me. Love the little one perched on the anchor with the peace dove above him. I like the neutral palette, and that embossing on the background looks perfect with the anchor motif. Love the gold metallic thread on the stitching...a very nice extra detail. TFS & Hugs
