Cmas Card Challenge - July - Brown/Ivory/Gold

This month's challenge is a color one - Brown - Ivory - Gold.
I decided on this angel.  I cut the wings from gold card stock with the Stampin Up! Elegant bird die. They need to be cut with the gold side facing each other so when cut creates wings for each side. I embossed them with the Cuttlebug Victorian folder.  I found some vintage looking Designer Paper (webster's pages - ladies & gents - Sunday afternoon) for her body.  I cut the dress in a triangle shape from the DP.  I punched a Stampin Up! Modern Label from a dark espresso brown card stock and then added a ivory greeting color printed in dark brown then punched with the Stampin Up! Word Window punch.  I punched the head with a 1" circle punch is the same card stock as the greeting.  The angel was then mounted on a brown card.

Total cards so far: 65
I think I will have to step things up a bit.
