Hark the Herald Angels Sing

I had a lot of fun planning out this card.  I've had the angel and sentiment for quite some time but only now did I think to print out some sheet music for that song to go along with it.  I changed the color of the SM from black to brown so that it would match my color scheme better.  I sponged some Tim Holtz distress inks (antique linen) on the paper to give it an aged look.  I also inked some brown pigment ink on the embossed portion of the frame to really make them stand out. 

My flower is not only a flower.  I also used two snowflake punches and layered them between the prima paper flowers. 

I've used a gold and silver paint pen on the hearts and stars and to make her gown shimmer I have used Stickles Icicle. I'm such a girl...the more sparkle the better!
