Vintage Angel

Hello everyone how you all? Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
Todays card is a Vintage card that I made for the photo inspiration challenge over at Live & Love Crafts. However we were at Ben & Megans yesterday then me & hubster cuddled & watched movies last night & I forgot all about it.......never mind lol. Also tbh I'm not that happy with how it turned out, in my head it was much better & very different...damn it!!
Anyhoo's here is the all its..........????
I have used the uber gorgeous new Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics paper & this one is '19th December' I inked the edges with walnut, distressed them & machine stitched them.

The corner is a Joy Crafts die, which was also inked with Pumice Stone. The flowers are from WOC & I also added 'White Frosted Berries'. I also added a 'Shabby Bark Heart''Birch Pine Cones'. I added bits of white gesso to everything.

The dies used are Joy Crafts 'Snowflakes Ice Crystals 3' & Square Frame & Marianne Design 'Poinsettia' & 'Pine Branch', the dies have been inked with Pumice Stone. The snowflakes have had shabby white fran-tage on them & scalloped pearl centres added.

This gorgeous image is 'Vintage Angels' by Inkado. I machine stitched around it & added bits of white gesso.

Inside is decorated as always. The lace is from LLC.  I've also added Marianne Design 'Rudolph' die to the front, again inked up with Pumice Stone.

Also I thought I would show you a pick of Arjay in his cast. We know its gonna do him good in the long run but OMG its awful not being able to hug him as he's gotta stay absolutely flat at all times.
Here he is at mine on a bean bag with his blanket underneath him.
The cast goes up to his waist with just a bit cut out for his bum. He has 2 nappies on, his normal one that has to be changed & then a bigger one over the top as you cant fasten his normal one as it causes him discomfort. The only way we hold him is on a pillow across our legs :0( He's still obviously in discomfort but we have had lots of gorgeous smiles from him in between bless him, you know the ones that melt your heart....

Anyhoo's I'm gonna go do some blog hopping. Thank you all for your lovely comments especially about Arjay they really do mean the world.
Thank you for stopping by & I hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous mmwah

Aww Vicky, lil' Arjay looks so sweet on his big beanbag. Such a cutie, tubes and all! When all this is behind you, you'll be able to look back on those picks and see what a little trouper he's been. Bless you all as you wait for those longed for snuggles.

Love the card hunny, so beautiful! Gorgeous design and layout and such yummy embellies. The gold is a gorgeous touch and those cherubs are so sweet. Hugs, Wends x

So sorry to learn about your poorly grandson. Must be heartbreaking to see him in such discomfort; hope time goes by quickly so that the cast will soon be a memory of the past.

As far as your card's absolutely stunning: what do u mean u don't like it?! I love it and it's a real shame u forgot to submit it, as this would easily have made it into my Top Picks.

Take care sweetie and best wishes that Arjay recovers soon. Hugz, Sandy
