I think this cherub element can add a sacred accent to your  Xmascard or page. Since it comes as a pair I'll upload the LEFT side cherub soon.
It has 3 layers:
a bottom layer: HERE
a middle layer: HERE
and a top layer: HERE

Hope you like it as much as I do...since it reminds me my childhood...
at a little portuguese baroque town here in Brazil:

sorry for the photo album...lol...just got excited here...looking to these pix I got from someone else Flickr albums.
wow...I've found even one pic where we can see my family's house where I lived all my childhood and...where my mom still stays 15days every month since she got a condo for herself 3y ago... same city my two sisters&me have been living the last decades.

At last... some pix of our main church where we used to go to the Christmas mess with its baroque organ filling the atmosphere with amazing sounds besides the thick clouds of incense smelling so good ... beautiful memories of my childhood Christmas time.

    Oh how I need a vacation. These photos inspires the mood to travel. Love seeing these photos and learning more of your hometown. I like the style of the homes with the mountains in the background.

    I live in the middle of no where, mid-west USA. We do have a great vineyard close by and
    lots of horse farms, with white fences all over.

    Again, thanks for sharing.
