Funky Angel

Good morning everyone! Fall is starting to make it's appearance here, the leaves are turning gorgeous shades of yellow, red and orange and the air has drooped cooler. I am hoping to head in to one of the forests in the next couple of weeks to take some pictures.

There's some sad news over at Crafty Girls, 30th October will be their last challenge. but all is not lost - you will see me pop up as a design team member at Crafting for the weekend challenge blog and Crafting from the heart Face book Erin has kindly asked me to relocate there!

But for now today is the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Girls. Once again they have 2 sponsors, Lacy Sunshine and QKR Stampede. The challenge as always is anything goes and you can find the rules and how to enter here.
I love the angels from QKR so chose to use the hug me angel. As she has a great pair of bovver boots on I decided to make her more colourful and funky than the celestial angels we are used to.
I have colored her with my Spectrum Noir pens in bright purples and blues to match the backing paper which I have matted onto purple mirror card. Her wings have been glittered with 2 shades of pink but it doesn't show too well on the photo. I have then used a memory box die to cut the gingerbread border and a tattered lace one for the sentiment. some small purple sticker dots finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and now go enter our challenge!
