Rolled Paper Flowers @ Christmas Card Challenges

Morning all :) 

Sadly this is my last week playing guest along with 

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the girls for having me :)
It has been wicked fun & great to make a dent in the Chrissy cards for this year.

I could not have asked for a better last challenge either .... 
#30 - Rolled Paper Flowers
This one certainly got me thinking with this creation :)

The angel I designed and cut on the Cameo and is made up of a base layer of angel and wings that has been ink distressed, and then there is 2 additional layers of wings only that have also been ink distressed, have feathers layered behind them and the top layers also have the addition of glitter flakes.

To 'hide' the joining of the additional layers of wings to the body I covered the area with the 3 rolled paper roses, some handmade posh pins and a little bell.  Every angel needs a halo so I whipped one up using some gold wire from my Crafty Geeks Wind It  prize I won from Purple Cows  and also continued the wire down wrapping it around her lower body. Finishing her off with a sentiment that was computer generated.
I think she is pretty spectacular, what do you think?

Considering this was 'just an idea' that popped in my head, I am rather pleased with the end result, it is so soft and delicate to look at and with the addition of the feathers it feels the same under your fingertips. 

We would love to see your Rolled  Paper Flowers this week at
