Angels, From the Realms of Glory

Bah Humbug's challenge this week is Christmas Carols.  On a cream square card blank I mat and layered some sheet music paper (which was downloaded free from the internet) onto black card.  I have taken the first verse from Angels, From the Realms of Glory, which I suppose is more of a Christmas Hymn than a Carol, and printed it out onto pearlised cream card.  If you are quick you can then emboss it with clear embossing powder (printer ink doesn't dry so quickly on coated card) which I did.  I then cut it out with my nesties and matted it onto a larger gold mirri die cut.  I then used a stamp from Stamps Away called Large Angel of Peace and embossed it in gold onto cream pearlescent card.  I then stamped and embossed a second image onto vellum.  I cut out the original image and just the wings from the vellum which were added using Pinflair Gel.  I then added a small ribbon bow and some pearls.

Thanks for looking.
