Design Team Challenge: Luck of the Irish!

Good Morning! This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug. This week at SweetSassyDiva’s the theme is Luck of the Irish. I was figuring out how I wanted to do this project as I went along. I wasn’t sure how it was going to look when I was done with it, so I didn't take pictures of the process. I cut the Angel out @ 20 from the Christmas Solutions cartridge, so I had to cut it in pieces. Thanks to my Gypsy, this wasn’t a problem! I cut out the upper body first, along with the hair and the floral vine (from MS Elegant) and flower on a 12 x 24 mat.
Next I cut out a larger portion of the Angel for the yellow dress and the top cut of the wings, cut @ 11.75.
The solid part of the wing, also @ 11.75 in dark green.
The bottom part of the yellow dress:
I trimmed the brown hair and added it to the flesh colored face and added that and the hands to the yellow part. I glued the two yellow pieces together and added some green ribbon to cover the seam. I printed out my saying on velum and glued that to the top of the skirt. I took a piece of my Reflections rhinestones cut it down for her necklace. I really need to invest in some Peachy Keen face stamps, but my crafting budget has become my “spoil my Grandson” budget. LOL
