Angel Card

This card I made for Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog, Challenge # 8!
I had 2 hours to make this card before the challenge ended...and it took me the full 2 hours to make it!  Is that normal?  I seem to take hours to make just about all of my cards...it takes so long thinking up designs and layouts.
Anyway, the theme for this one is "song title".  I chose Earth Angel by The Penguins, and here's my card:

The angel is a printout which was cut out on ordinary printer paper, which I coloured with a tea bag (my first try at doing this, and it looks like it worked!) :D
 I glued the angel onto white slightly textured paper, punched the corners with a corner punch that happened to match the background paper, inked the edges of the white paper with gold ink, and glued it on.
 And I used the corner punch outs to decorate the card as well - I spray painted them gold and glued them on.
Then I just embellished with pearls and a metal goodie at the top (an a pearl glued on there as well).

Nice card! I'm not surprised about your card taking two hours to make, I usually take 3 to 4 hours to make a card...
