In search of angels

Vintage artwork is always so romantic and alluring, and I was determined to incorporate some of this charm into a Christmas card. To begin with, I needed an angel face, and I found this beautiful tinted photo of a girl from some advertising artwork at the Graphics Fairy blog. In addition, I have used Stampin' Up!'s musical wheel stamp and The Sounding Joy stamp set, featuring "Joy to the World" in the shape of a star. I also used Sizzix die cuts of angel wings and a Tim Holtz crown die cut. Various distressing, antiquing and glimmering techniques were employed to create a finished vintage card. Merry Christmas!
