Happy Monday Challenge...

Good Morning!  Its Monday so that means a new Happy Monday challenge on Crafting with Deedee's Digis.  This week Deedee has a really fun sketch to work with.  I flipped it to accomodate the image I chose this week which is called A Light into the World.

I don't think I did this gorgeous candle justice, not like Deedee did, but I think my Mom will like it.  Every year I hurt myself over planning my Christmas cards.  I never manage to make them but I do make cards for my blog and then give them away.  This year, they'll be the Christmas cards in the mail.  I found a really pretty scrap of Basic Grey paper and it was just enough for the card front.

Here's the inside of the card where I used one of the two sentiments that comes in this set.  I also pulled out some old punches to continue the holly theme.

Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Real Red (SU!)

Paper: Fruitcake (Basic Grey)
Copics: E30, R02, R27, R29, Y11, Y15, Y17, Y28, YG63, YG67, YR16
Tools: Oval cutters (CM), Scallop Oval Nesties (Spellbinder), holly leaf punch, 1/4" circle punch
Embellishments: olive satin ribbon (Offray)

I hope you like my card and that'll you'll join in the challenge.  They're so fun!  You are required to use a Deedee's Digis image to participate but her images are so sweet and so affordable - treat yourself today and play along!  Thank you for stopping by!

I love this card! When I was growing up, we went to a country church...which was funny since we lived in the city. We would drive there every Sunday. Each year for Christmas, they would put a candle just like this in the windows of the church. It really spells Christmas to me (in a nostalgic kind of way!) I love the card!!! Great job, so much detail!

You did a BEAUTIFUL job with the candle, Melissa! It really shines, no pun intended! The papers you used go so wonderfully with the image, and it's neat how you carried the holly design inside the card, too. I think your mom is going to love this -- I sure do! Hugs, Deedee
