#140 OSAAT - Use a Digi

The challenge this week at One Stitch at a Time is Use a Digi so come along and join us and check out the wonderful cards of all the other DT members. My DT buddy, Josephine, chose this image for us both to use and it's called Christmas Candles by Jess over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop

The sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher for her online store. Please check the OSAAT blog for details of the prize structure.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added some Stickles to certain areas to give it some bling. After colouring was complete I cut it with a Spellbinders grand nestie and then edged it with Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade which, I hoped, gave it the glow of the candles. The image was then matted on to a piece of bright red, embossed card from Payper Box. It didn't need any further embellishment as this red card has a beautiful sheen to it. The card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas
LEJ Designs - Seasons Greetings
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspiration - Traditional Christmas Colours
Simply Create - Anything Goes
SJ Crafters - Christmas
Southern Girls - Christmas
