Angel - DCM wings dare

Well I have created a card that i am happy to Share.
i often do these but rarely am i happy with my cards, I have been admiring the last few that Mel Goodsell has done and yesterday it hit me that when I do a card it's not often true to my creative self. If that makes sense. I have a certain knack for bold colour combinations and love textural elements but don't usually carry these into my card making for some reason ??
So for the wings dare I've whipped up a modern Angel and am really happy with her. The dress is felt trimmed with pinking shears I sewed a small piece of trim on and added little beads for a bit of gleam. The wings are Maya Road chipboard inked silver and embossed - I never have luck with embossing but continue to try, I did burn them a bit * rolling eyes * I added some feathers and a bit of bling for a top. I put her on a beautiful or 'heavenly' if you like, floral background.





As you can tell by the shadow I took this pic in full sun to really make the white dress 'glow'
