Angel Holiday Card

I started this card with a piece of dark green cardstock for the base and a piece of slightly smaller white cardstock for the front panel.  I stamped the angel and then die cut an oval next to it.  I stamped the harp and then started punching out lots of branches.  I lined the oval and glued a piece of music notation (a scrap piece from a public domain song I printed on resume paper a few years ago) behind it.  I added some red glitter gel pen to the stamps (the angel's corset and various flowers) before gluing the front panel onto the card base.  

I very lightly inked three poinsettia flowers (cut on the Silhouette), and glued them together.  I used 3 daubs of a thick gold embossing paint in the center.  I took a sewing pin with a bead on the end and added beads I bought that form an angel and glued it to the back of the poinsettia before gluing the poinsettia to the page.  To finish, I added a few gold embossing dots at the ends of some swirls.

I'm entering this in Simon Says Stamps' Anything Goes challenge as well.
