Stamps R Us Angels Among Us!

Hello and welcome to another Stamps R Us challenge! This week our sponsor is A Day for Daisies, and our challenge is "angels." There are lots of cute angel images from the ADFD store, and I chose this "love angel" for my card. I colored the image with Copics and added some MS tinsel glitter to the wings for some sparkle.
For the background, I used this tutorial called the Herringbone. It was done with papers from the BoBunny Crush collection. I found this technique to be fun and relaxing to create, and it really makes for some unique looks. The sentiment is a free digi I downloaded recently, and I named the file with the site I got it from, but I'm unable to find a link for it, so if anyone knows who created this, please share it with me and I'll edit this post to give credit to the artist.
As always, our sponsor will be offering a generous prize package to a randomly drawn winner, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by playing along! Please click here to see the rest of the DT's fabulous angel creations for some inspiration!
Have a fantastic week and thanks for stopping by!
