A Winter Earth Angel

I made my card today for the Split Coast color challenge (vanilla, black, soft suede) as well as the Doubledog Dare Challenge where Anne (jdmommy) challenged us to make a winter birthday card. I hope the dark colors qualifies this as winter!?!

This silk ribbon from Sharon's Stamp Simply Ribbon Shop is as soft as butter and just drapes so beautifully!

I paper pieced the sweet Earth Angel's dress. I masked her to stamp the lovely lacey looking wings behind her. I used my copics for coloring.

The stamps are from the Earth Angel set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
