Hello everyone.  I would like to start by saying that my card Cancer for my MIL won 1st place at Jackson's Digital challenge.  You can see the badge on my sidebar!  So very happy and proud!  Hope my MIL likes it as much when she gets it... no news from them today. I will keep you guys posted since I'm sure all the good vibes you have sent have helped.

Now onto tonight's post.

Tonight I decided to make a card that I can send to my step-mother for mother's day.  Shhhh don't tell her ;)  Luckily my dad and her don't have internet at home.  So unless she checks from work... she won't find out.  I'm doing the Pile it on challenge.  So trying to fit as many challenges as possible... well almost... 10 I think is enough ;)  Don't you think?
I used my beautiful Seraphina angel stamp from Kraftin Kimmie.  I bought her during Christmas time if I'm not mistaken... and had yet to stamp her up.  I figured this was perfect because my step-mom is quite an angel to us.  She's super sweet.  I'm really lucky because I'm surrounded by wonderful women!  And yes my family is what you would call "complicated" so let's not dwell on that lol

I colored her with copics and added icicle stickles to her wings. Here's the closer look:
I also used pebbles yellow chalk all around her and on the sentiment which comes BTW from Michele r design.  Check out her blog she is truly amazing.

Do you realize how lucky we are actually to have so many wonderful artist around us now that the web exists?!?  I have discovered this world in March and OMG what was I doing before I truly don't know.  I'm really {heart} all the wonderful digi's out there and the wonderful sentiments that say it much better than I ever did before... ok... I'm rambling again... lol

I used this great sketch:
And this color scheme:
