Punched Angel

This card is full of punch fun. I always enjoy finding new elements to make using my punches. I can't take credit for designing this cute angel, but am happy to share the idea with you.

TIP: It's easy to bump a card  up a notch with a little extra embellishment. My punched angel is already cute, but by adding some liquid pearl accents she now has some extra sheen and texture.
