Peace Prayer Angel

We are still decorating with  RIBBONS AND BOWS in our challenge for you at Twist of Faith this week (finishes on Tuesday)!  Here is my third creation, using an image from our sponsor...  Eureka Stamps - Angel. Isn't it the most beautiful, peaceful angel....

This is a CAS creation, using only three layers - white cardbase, cream/blue damask paper layer, and the white image layer.   Well, okay, 4 layers, as the angel is a separate layer.  I know I've used the Prayer of  St Francis a lot lately, but it really went so well with this image...the prayer layer was printed, trimmed to size, then chalked with blue pearly chalks.  I  fixed it to the paper layer, and then to the cardbase.

After printing the angel, I coloured her with alcohol markers, adding gold glitter pen to accent her robe, and the I fussy cut the image completely. I then placed and fixed the angel... her wings are not coloured, so they appear super white... fluffy, even ... although I did add a little glitter pen here and there to accent some feathers.  I added blue rhinestones to the four corners of the scripture layer.  I added an organza ribbon to the fold in the card... it goes all the way through the card, so it will also hold the card liner in place.

I am also sharing this card in these challenges:
