Guest Designer for this weeks ABC Challenge

I was so delighted to have been asked to be this weeks guest designer for ABC Challenge blog especially as this weeks challenge is B - Brown and Blue, my all time favourite colour combo!!
I decided to use the beautiful Whiff of Joy Melinda Helping Angel, I just love the expression on her little face. She has been coloured with distress inks and Twinkling H2O's, I have also added Stickles to her wings for a bit o' bling. I also used quite a few Nesties layers to bring the blue colour through and lift the image off the busy DP.

A close up of the flower with how I attached the charm. All I do is link two jump rings together, attach one to the charm and the other I feed the brad through.

The inside I have left plain and simple again, I love the DP and think it's busy enough without adding too much more

Recipe
Whiff of Joy Melinda Helping Angel and sentiment on the front is also by Whiff of Joy, from the General Sayings set of 6 stamps
The sentiment inside is from a Scrappy Cat set that I got from Hobbycraft
The paper I've had a good few years now - I can't believe I am actually cutting in to all this stash! The paper is by Overton House Designs
The heart border punch is my latest Martha Stewart acquisition - why are these punches sooo addictive and soooo expensive?? I wish someone in the UK would pull their fingers out and start stocking the full range of them - there sure is a call for them!!

Thanks for looking,

Bev x
