Russian Angel?

Whilst rooting through my box of Christmas card making goodies I came across some sheets of decoupage just waiting to be cut out.  They are of 'Angels' and they look in a Russian style to me.  I have had them so long that I cannot remember when I bought them or from where I bought them.
They are printed on beautiful paper and a real pleasure to cut out and are about 6/7 layers if you use them all.  I always use 1mm sticky pads so they are not too high.

I found a backing sheet from a Robert Addams CD that tones in with the background piece on the Angel so I have used that as the  card.

The green and gold coloured card used for the mats and the bows are from the new pad of adhesive papers ( Christmas and Winter) by DCWV that I bought a couple of weeks ago. I have added 3 gems to the bows.
I have two more of the Angels ready decoupaged but the hardest part is finding the right backing paper for them.  I may just put them on a white card - we'll see.
Thank you for looking.


  1. I love your angels and yes looking at her she does look Russian,
    It's a gorgeous card for a gorgeous Angel

  2. The angels are beautiful Carol, the backing paper is perfect as it is not too busy I think they would look good on a white background too

  3. You have a box for Christmas stash? I have a tall boy fit to burst LOL! I do love Christmas and have had to stop watching craft tv as I always see several things I like every year. Love your angel but I don't know about Russian, she looks more 'folky' to me(is that a word?).Either way she's beautiful.
