Glitter Angel

I made this card today for this week's challenge over at Winter Wonderland. The theme this week is Glitter & Angels.

Although difficult to see in the photo, this little angel really does sparkle. I decided to keep the card pretty simple with the minimal of embellishments so as not to take away from the glittery look.
For the backing I attached some Jac Paper to a piece of red cardstock before cutting it out with a Scalloped Rectangle Spellbinder die. After cut out, I peeled the backing off the Jac Paper and applied the glitter. The angel (from The Stamp Barn) has been coloured with Copics. I've added glitter to the swirls, dots, wings, collar, halo and lace on the bottom of the gown. The card is also shimmery as I've used Bazzil Diamond Bling cardstock. To finish the card I tied a simple bow with some shimmery organza ribbon.
