CHNC challenge 153: light it up

It's almost December, so, if you haven't made those Christmas cards yet, it really is time to get serious ... and perhaps my CHNC challenge 153 will help you - please click on the link and join in ... and, as usual, there are some great prizes to be won.

For my card I used the lamppost digital image supplied by one of the sponsors, Cedar Chest Designs, stamping alongside with 'caroling penguins' by Penny Black, colouring with copics. This was then mounted on to a piece of red mirror card with just the addition of a Craftwork cards sentiment, all matted on a gold card blank.

Colours inspired by The shabby tea room 194: Christmas is coming:

52 Christmas card throwdown: pick a previous theme challenge - I've chosen - Christmas carol: We wish you a merry Christmas ...
