Less Is More week 89

Hi everyone, and welcome to new members Marie and  Jackie. !

The Less Is More challenge this week is a one layer card with the theme of WINGS.

I didn't want to make a bird or butterfly card, an aeroplane would have been good but I don't have any suitable stamps so I settled on an angel for a one layer Christmas card.

This was my third attempt, on the second time the heat tool scorched the paper whilst I was trying to melt the embossing powder and set off the smoke alarm - lovely husband came rushing to the rescue!

The combined angel and sentiment stamp by Clarity was stamped with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Cosmic Wine embossing tinsel which has a lovely shimmer that was difficult to capture on camera, hence the second photo and Hark the Herald Angels Sing is one of my favourite carols. :)

Thank you for looking.
