Christmas Angel Challenge Greeting Card

I had a great time making this card and had to post it today instead of the one I was originally going to post.  This card works for two challenge blogs:  Papertake Weekly was to make a Christmas card, and Sketch Saturday #183 was this sketch.

So, here is my card.

 I went with a standard A2 size card rather than a square, but other than that change and the addition of a poinsettia in the bottom corner, I followed the sketch pretty closely.

 I used two stamp sets on this card, and one I haven't used in a LONG time!
The angel and the sentiment on the inside of the card which reads "May the wonder and peace of Christmas be yours." are from the Stampin Up set On Angel Wings.  The Christmas Greetings sentiment is from the Stampin Up set Grateful Greetings.

 I used a base of Very Vanilla, a layer of Old Olive which I embossed with the square lattice embossing folder.  I also used 1/2" strips of DSP to cover my layer behind the angel and ran that through the same embossing folder.  The two circles to the left of the image are from the same DSP.
 I used the five petal flower punch to make the poinsettia and layered it on top of a prima leaf.

I added pearls to the sentiment, the center of the poinsettia, and graduated pearls on the angel image.

Here is one final look at the card.

Thanks for looking!
