Angel Blessing

It's "Christmas in July" for the Stampendous Design Team this week and we are so excited to share some of their great products with you! Lucky for me, Stampendous supplies team members with those great products so we can create inspirational samples for you and them! For the July 2017 catalog we also received some fabulous papers from BoBunny. Thanks BoBunny, I LOVE your paper!

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy card that features one of the BRAND NEW images from our July 2017 release called Angel Blessing, R298. This beautiful little angel can be colored up in any color you wish and placed on coordinating backgrounds. The sentiment is part of the stamp so that is even better!
