15 Days of Christmas Cards - Day 15

Good Morning! The final day has come. And it's Friday! Whoo-hooo. I think we're getting our Christmas tree this weekend.

I had set out to create a card that had a more heavenly quality and less whimsical. I did a search on digi-images and I didn't come across exactly what I was looking for, so then I went the coloring pages route and I came across this image at CDK Kids dot com. It really loses some of it's beauty by being printed so small, but it's still very pretty.

I colored the image with Copics, which wasn't my original intention. I had wanted to pull out my Prismacolor pencils that I neglected this whole series. But Copics were the better choice for the small areas. The sentiment is computer generated and says He is called Emmanuel, which means God with us.

I used the sketch (loosely) from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Arlana has such a talent for sketches and she and her sisters are sweethearts. I changed it only a little Arlana, I hope that's OK. :o)

Thank you so much for joining me on the journey of 15 days of Christmas cards. I probably won't stop there, but who knows. I have some snow-people in my collection that are still begging to be played with. Winter just started, so we have a long way to go. Enjoy your weekend although I hope to see you here!
