Pretty little Angel

Good morning, 
How are you today?  I spent yesterday crafting away happily, I made three cards but this one is probably my favourite, the sweet little Angel is one from a page of Angels I bought from Live & Love Crafts, I used Frantage around her and on the papers.
The gorgeous chipboard frame I painted with guesso and stamped script writing onto it. I used lots of Ribbon Girl goodies on this one including one of the gorgeous new Corner Lace pieces
