Dressmaker with Wings

I can honestly say I've never made a card with the color combination they've set for us over at Inkspirational this week. But I found it so fun to work with these colors that I hope I'll find time to make another one!
I've used a blue and white DP, blue paper for my die cut dressmaker. I heat embossed some angel wings with white on kraft, and I used a doily patterned stamp, heat embossed with white on purple DP, panelled onto kraft, then onto an oval die cut of purple.  I finished off the card with a ticket for the sentiment and some pearls .

I enter this card into these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - # 6 Colors
2) Divas by Design - #71 Winged Things
3) Artistic Inspirations - #27 Embossing
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes 



I also wanted to show you what I received by mail today - a fantastic candy given to me by the lovely Meredith - The Crafty Math Chick - of Canines & Card Designs. Thank you so much!
