Dueling Darlings January Duel

We are at it again.  That's right it is time for a duel.  The Dazzlers received a great kit from Melina, our January hostess, and it was full of wonderful papers, embellishments and the sweetest image.  

This month's theme was:  ANGELS ~ more specifically, THE DAZZLERS ARE ANGELS! 

Our kits included:
~ image: C.C. Designs "Peace on Earth"
~ teal papers: Recollections
~ textured paper: DCWV
~ acetate sheet: Crafter's Companion 
~ white bag/pocket: Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique on FB
~ buttons: MFT
~ dewdrops: The Robin's Nest
~ fabric flower: Wal-Mart
~ thick baker's twine: Maya Road

And the extra take on the duel...Carol and I want to hear any "Angels Unaware" stories you may have or something about the person that is considered an angel to you, in your life when you post on the 15th.

Here is my card:

Sorry my photo is kind of washed out.  I had to use my phone and it just didn't take a good a picture as my camera.  I wanted to keep my card clean and simple.  I just did a couple layers and some simple embellishments.  HOWEVER, Carol I did use glitter.  Aren't you proud?  ;)  I did use some Baja Breeze ink on the white flower, however that doesn't show up so well here.  

As for my person who I consider an angel...she is an amazing, Godly woman.  And when you fall on hard times and she says she will pray for you, she will.  She will cry with you and rejoice with you.  I thank God for her.  

Please see my side bar and check out all the Dueling Darlings creations.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Debbie--first, I beg to differ. The Dueling Darlings ALL are Angels--not just to Dazzlers!

I think your card is too cute-I just love the image that Melina sent to all of your team. I love the design you used--great job!

Such a sweet card. I like how you kept the dress white and the touch of sparkle! The inverted banner looks really good for a bit of color. Great card!
