Default My Flower Top Angel

Hey Y'all.. wanted to share an angel I made to go into the bouquet of flowers ( pink Carnations W/one white one) for my G granddaughter born on Wednesday the 16th at 7lbs 2 Oz... Since her grandmother passed away in April and couldn't be here for her birth I wanted to include her someway with the flowers... so I made an angel for the flowers.
I used the Paper Dolls stamp set ( paper pieced ) and the 3 Butterflies and 2 shadows die to make it... I cut two dolls and sandwiched a piece of soft wire to make the stick to stick down in the flower arrangement. When I cut my dies I always use a piece of wax paper to help with the release. Forgot I had the wax paper on there and put my gold stickles on and then realized what I did and instead of throwing it away ( cause it was so pretty) I made double wings.. one set waxed paper, another set cardstock! Worked like a charm!!!
Thanks for looking..
God bless
Nyoka

The angel is beautiful, great idea with the waxed paper (don't you love happy accidents?). Congratulations on the arrival of your great granddaughter!
