SNOWFLAKE ANGELS

Sorry I have been MIA for a bit, just been busy with Christmas around the corner. I found these beautiful angels on CDAC and had to create them. I will also be helping out my children's class create these angels too for their holiday party. I used Christmas balls from Wal-Mart ( 1.1" - 16 for$3.00), papers by Curious Metallics and Malmero Pearle and ribbons from Michaels. Oops almost forget that I embossed the with the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I don't want to post instructions yet because CDAC is having a class on how to make them. Hope you like. Don't forget to leave a comment on this post to have a chance to win 20 sheets of Cryogen White cardstock from Paper Temptress. GOOD LUCK TO ALL and thank you for joining in on the fun.
