Christmas Carol For CCC

Good morning to you all.  We have had a couple of reasonable days and yesterday was warm and sunny Yay!!  Will it last is the question?   It's almost June, for goodness sake, so it's about time the sun made up it's mind to stick around!!

As usual I am a day early in posting my card. This week it is Rita's turn to choose the theme for the Christmas Card Club and her choice is to base our card on a Christmas Carol.  Great stuff.

My Card

5" x 7" card base made from green card stock in stash
gold linen card - really ancient stash 
image - Christmas tree Collage - Our Daily Bread Designs
Promarkers to colour

Extremely simple and extremely flat!  I livened it up a bit with the gold card.  I also added gold glitter to the star and candles on the tree and after colouring the baubles red I added glossy accents to make them shine.

Well that's all from me today. Hope everybody is well.

Take care.

A gorgeous Christmas card, love this stamp I have it too and it's beautiful. You have added just the right amount of colour to bring it to life and keeping it flat is always a bonus for the postage too.
