Autumn Angels or Fall Hanging

 
 
I'm a little late in posting my Bloggers Challenge project. I had it done in plenty of time, but I'm still in the learning curve with handling pictures on my new computer. It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.

This weeks Bloggers Challenge is Welcome Fall. I thought that it would be fun to change off from a card and make a hanging. Keeping with fall colors, I used my lacey angel die (Cheery Lynn) in gold against a rust pinwheel doily (Cheery Lynn). I cut three of each, layered the angel on the doily, and folded then in half. I adhered the halves of the doilies to each other to create a tri-section ball. I attached die cut leaves (Cheery Lynn Build a Flower 3) in various fall colors to each angel and hung leaves from the bottom of the ball.

I'm also playing in the Ink on my Fingers Sunday Challenge which is make a hanging and in Cheery Lynn Designs and Tuesday Throwdown who both had the theme things with wings.
