Angels are Friends... card

A friend of mine recently visited from out of town.  I normally have to send her cards I can mail, so I thought I'd do something a little less small and flat.  The card actually turned out so big it wouldn't fit in any of the envelopes I had!

As with most of my cards I started with the stamped image.  I wanted the angel and dove to sparkle a bit and so stamped them on a glossy cardstock and cut them out with a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment was masked and stamped (so it's on two lines rather than one).

I used a large square white cardstock for the card base, layered a piece of black cardstock and put a top layer of patterned paper with some flowers and curliques.

I die cut the window frame out of gold parchment paper, and the greenery on my Silhouette.  The purple flowers were punched and have glitter glue in their centers.  I also added a few pieces of fishing wire with some beads on the end.
