Angel Choir

This is the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

I helped an elderly lady clean out some closets a couple of years ago. She gave me a very old hymnal that otherwise would have been thrown away. Always on the hunt for inspiration, I am thinking these pages would be great as backgrounds on cards. So I am saving $ on DP and recycling at the same time. Is it sacrilege to tear pages from a hymnal?  Hope not! Using Christmas Carol pages, I made a set of 4 "angel choir" cards. This one for the sketch challenge.
I tore the page to fit the Kraft card base, sponged it with Tim Holtz tea dye ink. A little lace and ribbon from my stash. Punched scallop circle from SU gold metallic paper. Angel stamp from Stampabilities, wings colored with clear star gel pen, and eyes and mouth with fine line marker.
Here are the other 3
Maybe a great gift for music teacher?


  1. Great idea, Donna! Wish I had an old hymnal.

  2. These cards are all gorgeous! Love the vintage look. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Great idea to use the hymnal!! Better to bless someone on a card than to be in a closed hymn book!!
    These are beautiful!!
