Another late challenge post

As I mentioned before and gave a link to, my mom introduced me to a stamp company called Motivet.  Their images are absolutely precious.  Well, she did a challenge with them and after going to their blog decided to participate as well.  But I only had a little bit of time to do it.  Once I got going on the card I realized I wasn't going to have time to finish it and post it in time so I just took my time after that.
This is what I came up with.

I think this little angel is absolutely precious and all their images are so fun to color.  I used some new paper I picked up during a shopping trip with my mom.  It is from Making Memories and we got it at a HUGE discount.  I don't think I would have picked it up if it wasn't on sale.  It is called "Vintage Findings".  I just love the vintage feel of anything.  I swear I was born in the wrong generation but I know the big man upstairs knows more than I do.
The base and mats are all made with kraft cardstock.  The patterened paper are both from vintage finding.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the lattice or lace feel to the strip.  The buttons are both PTI and cheapos from Wal-Mart.  The snowflakes I have had for a while and probably got at Michael's. 
The little angel was colored in using koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil.  I also used stickles for her wings and crystal effects for the scissors.  I just love how this card turned out and wish I could have gotten my act together in time to enter it into the motivet challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

I love how this turned out! Great job. I actually forgot about that paper until you mentioned it. I guess I need to get more organized. :)
Motivet has a new challenge up for this week. Keep commenting and you just might win some too!
