Beautiful Day...farewell

Today is not necessarily a "beautiful day" (we had an ice rain this morning and I have a bad cold) but I just love this stamp set that will be retiring from The Angel Company on 28 January. The saying reminds us to make each day a beautiful day!

I hope you will appreciate that I dragged out my sewing machine to add the final touches to this card that was heavily inspired by atomicbutterfly over on SCS. The scraps of paper come from TAC's Angelee Soar with it Collection...to those of you who are fans of inking edges (and you know who you are!) I did that on the sheet music as well as the focal image.


Card Materials: all papers and stamps from The Angel Company
Stamps: Beautiful Day
Accessories: Angelee Soar with it Collection and cardstock, sheet music from when I was 13!, button and flowers also from TAC (Lemonade Buttons and Blossoms), scrappers floss, palette ink, nestablities (which we are now carrying too!)

In case you haven't checked out Beautiful Day before...it's now marked down to $13.17 and will only be available through next week. (sniff, sniff)

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a beautiful and happy day!
