Christmas By Candlelight

Are you all sick of seeing Christmas cards, yet? I know, I know! Luckily for you, I'm almost finished with mine! (nothing like last minute cards, right?!)

This is our Free Week at Daisy Doodles, so we get to choose whatever we like. Since I'm still in Christmas Card mode, I chose this gorgeous Christmas candles image to work with.

This card is for my mother in law, who's very relgious, hence the spiritual yellow DP.

The image is from Daisy Doodles and is colored with Promarkers. I went with a non traditional pastel color combo for this one, and a clean and simple theme. I added glitter and sparkle to the image with my clearstar gelly roll pen and finished the card with this fun pennant/bunting/banner put together with green baker's twine.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
