Angel Caroline

This week's new image is "Angel Caroline", and if you did not play along last week and receive this image from Faith in your inbox, you can purchase it in her digi shop.

I knew right away that I wanted Caroline to have sparkling wings. And I wanted to keep it CAS and make sure the main focus would be on Caroline. I opted for a black card with a dark background....I think is gives it more of a warm feeling. And of course when I think of angels, I think of my wonderful friends. Because that's what they are to me, you ladies, you know who you are *wink*

I kept her dress monotone and just added some subtle hints of colors thru out. On a recent shopping trip I found a package of some cardstock strips already cut into fancy shapes & designs. I decided to alter 1 of them a bit and give it some sparkle. I lightly painted over the top w/my Creative Inspirations Paint. See below to see how the paint just makes them 'pop'!!

And here is my completed card!!

Glad you stopped by to take a look!! Don't forget to leave a comment, as I really like to hear them.

Love, Peace and Chicken grease
