Angelic Blessings Christmas Card

I fell in love with this Close to my Heart stamp set at first sight. It has so many possibilities.
My card started out being a Sympathy Card but it ended up a Christmas Card.

I started out with a sketch from My Time Made Easy.

The Angel is from a set called Angelic Blessings and the sentiment is from Card Chatter Christmas. Colors used are Sky and Gypsy.

I added some clear glitter from MS to the Angel wings and clouds. The Spellbinders dies was cut out and MS purple Glitter glue applied to the edging.  The Memory Box Dies Cut in the upper right corner was layered with prisma glitter.

I hand stitched around the card with white embroidery floss in just a regular straight stitch. I LOVE hand stitching. It's my therapy
