Moments filled with Wonder

A Christmas card now!!!  When the sun is suppose to be shining in the blue sky!!  Yes, I decided to make a small dent in the amount of Christmas cards that I make every year!!  And when I saw the announcement on Lili of the Valley today, I knew it was time to get to work ( for those of you who haven't heard, starting next week they will start previewing the new Christmas stamps ).

This image is "Christmas Candle" and the card uses this weeks wonderful LOTV challenge sketch by Donalda.  I used Copic markers to color the image and the airbrushed night sky, and for the first time I tried using the candlelight glow for the light source ( note- the glow on her coat, face and hair ).  I used Spellbinders Label 18 to cut the image out.  All of the gorgeous paper is from Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost collection from last year.  Clear acrylic snowflakes have added glitter on them, and both the image and sentiment are bordered with Star Dust Stickles.

Challenges that I am entering this card into are:
Lili of the Valley - #104 Sketch by Donalda
The Outlawz - Monochromatic Blues
Card Cupids - Monochromatic Card
CMC Copic Challenge Group - #22 Favorite Copic Technique
Craft Us Crazy - #12 Christmas in July
Moving Along with the Times - #106 Christmas in July
Stamping with the Dragon - Christmas in July
