Decoration............in Wonderland

Crafty Individuals Challenge.........Winter Wonderland
Hello everyone long time no blog,,,,,,,,,,,,I haven't had much crafting time lately  Mom has not been too good so I have been spending  lot of time with her and sleeping in the evenings...............anyway I had another light bulb moment at the weekend and wanted to make some Christmas decorations for Me!!!
 I like to decorate my doors with hangings and so with this in mind I set about routing through my Spellbinders Dies and started cutting.  I have been fiddling I mean designing lol for a few evenings until I finally settled on this one.  I will be making about 6 and they will all be slightly different the Stamped image will stay the same with a few variations I'm thinking.

For the stamped image I have used CI 056 from Crafty Individuals which I then realized meant I could enter their challenge for November I really thought I would have to miss this one. Hope it fits the challenge ok.
This was inked in grey memento ink onto white card and then inked over with antique linen distress inks, I also inked the other die cuts with same colour.
snowflake was cut out using Tim Holtz papers and the flower behind the organza rose was from his tattered flowers die inked with stormy ski. I added a touch of glitter to the Angels wings ( I really like this image) and to the edges added rose and hat pins and ribbon  (creative expressions).  I'm very pleased and hope to finish all the others soon...... will blog them all when I have done so.
