Christmas Card Club # 8 - Christmas Lights

Hello to you all.  Well the weather has been much better over the past few days, thank goodness.  Everybody is much happier when the sun shines - well I know I am!

Another two weeks have passed and it is time to post another card for our friendly little Christmas Card Club. This time it was the lovely Asha's turn to choose and she asked us to make a card showing Christmas Light.  She was kind enough to be pretty open so that we could use candles, fairy lights, lamps or lanterns.  As you can see I have chosen a candle, although it was a difficult choice because I have a few other digi images and toppers which would also have fit the bill.  It is actually not due till tomorrow  but decided to do this rather than post two cards tomorrow as I have another which needs posting then . If you would like to see the cards made by the rest of the girls you will find their contacts in my sidebar.

My Card

I have used a 7"x7" card from Anna-Marie Designs.  The backing papers are Silent Night from First Edition and are lovely shades of green which don't show too well.  I used Die'Sire Embossalicious embossing folder Seasonal Music on a small piece of the backing paper and all the papers are matted onto green pearlescent paper.  The LOTV stamp is Angelic Candle coloured with Flexmarkers.  The carnations are WOC and I liked the dark green colour which tones well with everything else.  The sentiment is from Little Claires Designs and amtted onto SB Lacy Circles.The holly is Cheery Lynne's Holly Corner, a couple used whole and the rest chopped up.   The lovely ribbon is some that I won from Patricia (Summerhouse Crafts)and it seems a long time ago!  The lace and pearls are from my stash. And of course I just had to add some glitter to my angel's wings!

I hope this finds everybody well.  So many of you have been under the weather - or your partners have - so here's hoping the better weather will kill off all these bugs that are around.  Enjoy your weekend!

  29. Angels are another love of mine (along with the cardinals), so I'm especially taken with this sweet LOTV image, colored up so beautifully. Love all those background papers, and the wonderful way you've used the CL holly in so many different ways. Your gold music score tucked behind, just sparks this card. This is is so very pretty, Christine, TFS & Hugs
