Angelic Card

I am so happy that I just got my new order from Stampin' Up and am ready to try out all my new goodies!  The first stamp to get inked up is this morning was the angel from the Rejoicing with You set.  I wanted to experiment with supplies and not be afraid of the end product possibly not being what I wanted it to be.  So with that in mind, I decided to try the sketch over at Merry Monday.
Unfortunately, I was not able to get a good picture of this card.  The Bravo Burgundy card base looks washed out and the gold frame around the circle does not look gold.  This looks better irl, but still does not compare to a card that inspired me from the Merry Monday blog post earlier this month.  If you want to see perfection, check out this card.  
                      I used:
Stamps- Rejoicing with You
Paper- Bravo Burgundy, Crumb Cake, Nataurals Ivory and gold
Ink- Versamark, Bravo Burgundy
Other-sponges, gold ep, Victorian ef, new Stampin' Up framelits
Well, time to "experiment" with more new supplies!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
EDIT-Thursday evening-
I have been working with this set much of the afternoon and evening and am getting closer to what I want, but still not there.  These cards no longer follow the Merry Monday sketch, but I do like them much better than my first attempt with this stamp.

Honestly, I think I am making this too difficult, but as my mother always has said, I make more work for myself than anyone else she knows!  Oh well, back to the Angel drawing board!
I did have fun trying out another new set today.  I know a lot of you will love this fun set, Happy Hour.  I hesitated getting this set, but am so glad I did.  And in contrast to the angel cards, this one was a snap! 

Supplies for this card include-
Stamps-Happy Hour
Paper-Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, dsp
Ink-Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
Other-Stamp-a-ma-jig, Decorative Labael Punch, dimensionals

Don't you just love these sunny colors?  Perfect for a friend's birthday.  Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed weekend!
