Mojo Monday Challenge #218

Back for another Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge - and this one is for prizes, people!
Also entering this in Stampin' Sisters in Christ (challenge is using Angels)
Also entering this in Simon Says Stamp (challenge is using inspiration from their Christmas montage)
I will also enter this in Wee Memories (again, as their challenge is anything goes!)

Here's the sketchy-poo:



Here's my take:

I am in LOVE with this card.  It's totally unlike my normal style, which to me apprarently turns out to be a good thing!  The angel wings started me off on this card, and unfortunately I think they were a bit too detailed as they got a bit mangled in my Pazzles electronic die-cutter.  I was about to thrown them away when I realized they looked really tattered and distressed, and thought 'hey I can make this work!'  So I sprayed the heck out of them with Tattered Angels (how perfect, huh?) Glimmer Mist in Gold.

I got the idea of the cut out letters from Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas Tag 4, placing music sheets behind the open letters (inked with Old Paper Distress Ink) and filling with Glossy Accents.  I kept some letters by themselves to create a kind of ransom-note look, popping the 'a' on top of a circle inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  In fact, the main paper, top paper, and 'everytime' and 'rings...' have been inked in Walnut Stain.  I finished with some jingle bells (idea from Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas Tag 3.
