Angel In Training

I'm still working without Mr Mojo and I'm really missing him .  Finally decided I would just have to press on without him but its quite hard work!  The background papers are from a New Melissa Frances pad I got last week ,pity I covered up so much of the bottom piece as its really pretty. Its the first time I have used this stamp although I got it last October at Port Sunlight, got a bunch of Lost Coast stamps and they have been languishing in the bottom of a box while I have been so busy with Christmas cards, I would normally go for distress/grungy look with their stamps but she is actually quite a pretty little angel so went with the pink thing. The bit of lace trim has been around for some time and the buttons are old ones from my massive button stash (memo to self that I must try and use more buttons)Think it fits a few challenges

  1. Gosh I wish I could makes cards like this without my mojo Joan.

    She looks adorable and I so know what you mean about covering up a beautiful paper it really goes against the grain but sometimes it is the only piece that looks right.
