Merry Monday Golden Angel

It's Merry Monday time.

I sure love how my Christmas card stash has grown!

This week Deanne is our sparkling hostess.
This is what she chose.

I remember someone giving my girls some kits for ornaments like this.

Homemade Christmas ornaments were a favorite gift giving idea at Christmas.

Here's my card.


I embossed this image on some 
beautiful shimmery cardstock that DH
picked out and gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago.
This is the last of it. :-(

The stamp belongs to a friend and I have no idea
who makes this stamp.
If you recognize it, please let me know so I can give credit.

I pulled out the Timeless Rectangle dies that I used a couple of weeks ago.
This image seemed to call for something elegant!

Since I used a snippet of Brushed Gold,
I can go play at

I can't wait for you to see what the rest of the 
Design Team has come up with.
Pop on over to Merry Monday and take a look.

Even better...make a Christmas card with sequins on it
and come join the fun at

I'm so glad you stopped by.

Enjoy!

Love this card Bonnie. Ornate without being overboard. It is almost a vintage card. Beautiful.

I love the lacy motion of this card, so elegant and shimmery. I wonder if Stampendous makes that stamp because they have a lot of things with scrollwork and flourishes like that. I don't know for sure, just guessing! I'm going to have to get my sequins out for this week.

Oh Goodie, I get to be first to comment again! Love this angel stamp and I've seen it before, but no idea of the maker. It's beautiful though, and really lovely embossed as you have done on the pearly papers. Your DH has a good eye for picking papers. Of course that rectangle die is so elegant and just perfect for this golden angel. TFS & Hugs. Thanks too for the sweet anniversary wishes.

Perfection Bonnie! :)

Debs Willis said...

Lovely card Bonnie, that die cut rectangle really sets it off.
I think this stamp is Inkadinkado. I have one that is almost the same, bit more swirly.
