Dueling Darling Angels!

Hi everyone! It's January 15th and time for another duel between the Dueling Darling Divas and Dazzlers.  Each month one Diva and one Dazzler come up with a theme and send each of their team members a kit to create a card around that theme.  This month Carol for the Diva's and Melina for the Dazzlers chose the theme "Angels"!  In Carol's words: "I like to think Angels among us.  Whenever, I thinkof angles I think of peace, tranquility, and beautiful scenery/flower gardens..."  In her delightful kit were the following:
  Designer Paper:
     Paper Pizzaz sponged blue and green
     Magnolia Summer Memories Forget-Me-Not Wallpaper
     Basic Grey Sweet Threads Fashionista
     K & Co. glittered flower from a paper pack
Six different ribbon/trim, flowers and a little adhesive rhinestones and a string of pearls.

Here are the two cards I made:
Front with a peak inside
I used the same cute angel image and layout on both cards.  The only thing different is the color scheme in paper, ribbons and flowers.  I used cardstock for the base and panels from my own supplies, as well as, the blue and pink flowers.  The image and the image panels were cut with Spellbinders dies.  I stamped the sentiment inside both cards with Stampabilities "May Your Birthday Be Filled..." stamp.
Carol asked us to share "an angel experience--guardian angel story...or anything of that nature...".  Although I can't think of a specific story regarding angels regarding me personally I do share with Carol the belief they do exist and our working for our benefit even when we don't recognize them. 
These two cards are going to some friends today as we celebrate our January birthdays.
Please check out the Diva's cards here:
