I have this beautiful digi from Digi Darla called 'Angel on Bridge' and have been itching to colour it but could never think of a card to use it for until now <g>

The challenge required a card to be made linked to a song.  Browsing through my stamps I came up with loads of ideas but could I think of a song.  Off to work the next day I asked a friend her favourite song and she chose Angel by Robbie Williams.  Back home, another look through my digi's and I was so excited to find the one I have used which fits so perfectly with the song lyrics, it even had a waterfall in the background.  I coloured the image with a blue toned background and only used the colours on the children, bridge and of course the angel.

I decided to make a Mother's Day card with this image, my Mum is my angel.  She is still very much alive lol but we live a distance apart, she in the UK me in Saudi but even though there are many miles between us I know she is always by my side.

  • Card stock from Craft Creations
  • Digi from Digi Darla - 'Angel on Bridge'
  • Backing paper, gosh I have no idea of the company, I bought it so many years ago, a great big pad of 12x12 in the sale when I first started making cards
  • Mulberry paper from Thailand trip, some little back street store
  • Ribbon from local craft shop, Al Zamil, in Khobar, Saudi Arabia
  • Flowers from Thailand
  • Charm from Hobby Craft
  • Ice Stickles on the angels wings for a bit of bling
Song Lyrics for this card (just the chorus) - Angle by Robbie Williams
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call,
she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

  11. I love this image! It's an image I remember from my childhood, it makes me think of my overnight stays at my grandparents house. My grandmother would say a little nighttime prayer about angels watching over me. Unfortunately both my grandparents passed away before I started school, but I remembered that picture and the prayer as clearly as yesterday! Thanks for reminding me.
