Sweet Pea Stamps - Rachel Anderson - Angelic

 I needed to make a special card for a friend to let her know I am thinking of her and her family.  I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Rachel Anderson called "Angelic".  She is available as a digital stampa single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image plate (Sheet 1, Plate 95 - Angelic comes on the multi-image plate with Lily of the Valley, Sweet Dreams and Snow Fae).
Due to the reason for sending the card I have kept my colour scheme very pale and used my Graph'it pens to colour and added highlights with my clear Wink of Stella pen.

The backing papers I have used are from Summertime Designs.  The recipient loves vintage style cards so I have tried to keep to what she likes.  I have finished the card off with some ribbon, Tim Holtz die-cut flowers, card candi, ribbon bow and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Robyn's Fetish - Vintage style
Whoopsi Daisy - Things with wings
Created with Love - Sympathy or miss you
LEJ Designs - Buttons, bows or beads
