First, my ornament inspiration!...

 I got to play with the ANGELIC set of stamps.  I picked up this wooden heart ornament at Michaels in all of their new products for Christmas projects. 

 I wanted to keep my stamped image very simple in the coloring so I used some of my very lightest Copic markers and kept the color combo very limited.  When I had it all colored, I sprayed it with some Smooch Spritz.  Plus I added some gold paint for the decoration at the neck line of their little outfits. 
I had downloaded a free piece of sheet music from Crafty Secrets and printed that out on white cardstock.  Next I took one of the stencils from Layers of Color and sponged it with brown ink.  I also sprayed this with the Smooch Spritz.  The outside rim of the wooden heart was painted with a pink paint and also spritzed so it wasn't too pink.
I also wanted to create a card using the same set of stamps so you could see more uses for the stamps.
I loosely used the sketch for this week at Card Patterns for my card.  The cardstock is two sided so I just used both sides.  That rub-on sentiment is from EAD Designs/Paper Smooches.

Again, I wanted to keep the image very simple in the coloring so I slightly colored the angel and then sprayed the entire image with the Smooch Spritz and cut it out.  LOVE the glimmer from the Spritz. I embossed the kraft colored corner with my Cuttlebug and the pink patterned paper is from Echo Park.  The corner is punched one time with a 4-in-1 Kreaxions punch.

Lovely, lovely texture and details! I love the sweet angels collars accented with the pearl drops and the way you used the feather twine as a border. I adore the stenciled back ground over the musical note paper. I hadn't seen these wooden hearts in Michaels... I'll be sure to look for them now though! lol This is a beautiful ornament and card, Linda. ;D
