Holy Night


I'm happy to join the Merry Monday #58 Christmas card challenge this week. This is going to make for a smoother and less hurried Christmas. Plus, Christmas cards are my favorite to make.

This is the sketch we are to use:

 

My image is a digi (listed under my recipe below) and the only coloring was with a gold Copic marker, Y28 Lionel Gold.


I'm also entering this card into the Dirty Dozen Fan Club April Christmas Challenge 2013-We Three Kings. Create a Christmas card with the Three Kings, Wise men, King, Crown or items of 3.

Recipe:
Stamps-Delicious Doodles digi image-We Three Kings, Hot off the Press/Christmas Words-sentiment (using two different stamps)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Black cardstock/Hobby Lobby, gold paper unknown, silver paper unknown
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black, image computer generated
Accessories-Spellbinders circle and circle scallop nestabilities, Gold Stickles, Gold Copic marker, handmade banners

Wow, if this is a digi, did you use up all your printer's ink? ;) It's a great mix of modern and traditional. Great job on the sketch, too! I just came from Bonnie Klass's blog, and saw the same sketch. You two are first on my list of visits today!
