Sugar Nellie Peace Angel

Morning Folks
This is my 5th Sugar Nellie card from the initial 5 stamps I received.

  She is called Peace Angel from Diane Duda, available from Funkykits .She is such a wistful image and although Christmas springs to mind as a great time to use her I also thought she makes a great friends card for those times when you have a pal that needs a lift.
The image has been coloured mainly with promarkers as I really like the promarker orange range On the face and hair I've used copics and her wings have been painted with white mica. As usual my photography lets me down cos it doesn't capture the irridescent sheen which is really pretty (honest!)
I wanted to challenge myself to make a card with no flowers and no bling I did cheat just a teeny bit as the backround cardstock layers are both glittered but that was already there so as I didn't add the glitter I'm going to let myself away with it.

 Thought I would make it an easel card. I had intended at first to make a twisted easel but I would have given in and added flowers (too much suface area for me to leave alone Im afraid) The card is layered with copper and green and the beautiful sentiment is a stamp that I layered on a nestie  Finished with American Crafts ribbon.
Ive really enjoyed making my first cards for the Sugar Nellie Design Team and would love you to leave a comment if you have been kind enough to stop by Hopefully I'll have a few more to share soon and just wait til you see the latest additions to the adorables range that will be appearing as digi images on March 1st Your'e going to love them
