Inspirational Photo Challenge

This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges the challenge is to create a card using Meighan’s inspirational photo. This photo to me says "Merry Christmas".

Here is my card inspired by her photo.

When I saw the photo I thought of this Holiday Candle Arrangement stamp I had in my stash by Embossing Arts Co. To colour my image I used a glitter pen and several colours of Copic Markers. I used old paper Distress ink for the background colour. I then layer my pretty pattern papers, edged them with my gold Krylon pen and added a gold ribbon to complete .

This is a great Christmas Challenge this week hope you will join in the fun and get those Christmas card done early this year. Just create your card and entry it here.
