Angel Delight!

I think my head is about to explode!!
I have finally ditched my old phone - affectionately known as 'the brick', and plunged myself into the world of 'Blackberry'.
I am now slower at making a call, or text, than the average 10 year old!!

Anyway, it's time for another challenge at the CES Challenge Blog.
Our host this week is the enormously talented Julie 
and she has chosen the theme...

Roses and Ribbons

Eek!! If you visit here often, you will know just how rubbish I am when it comes to flowers,
well, ha! I think I've found the perfect flower embellie for me. :-)

I made this card for my Niece's little girl - it's not really her 1st Christmas, but she was only a few weeks old last Christmas, so this time around she will be much more aware of what's going on.

The image is an adorable Teddy Bea Angel, coloured with Copics, glitter and Glamour Dust.

So how do you like them roses??    ;-)
I found this fabulous ribbon at my local craft store, with these pretty roses all along the length. You can snip off the roses to use individually or leave them as they are.
I snipped a few off, mounted them onto punched flowers and added a little pearl to the centre.
I think I need to go back to the shop and buy this ribbon in evey colour they have!!! :-)

Absolutely stunning as usual Caroline and those flowers are definitely my kind of flowers too!

Lol, I have a 'brick' too; an old Nokia that's a Cath Kidston limited edition. I've had it about 10 years and can't part with it. Good luck with the Blackberry - the buttons are so small on them I can't even see them!
