hand-drawn angel cards

eyes + lips + nostrils from a vintage illustration
all the rest by me (fountain pen)

I designed this angel 8 years ago and already have posted here
these are the original cards with this design though

funnily enough, one of my friends said
she liked her card a lot with this... girl in a poncho ;D 

cheesecloth, brown paper
