Anything But Rectangle Candle -- for the 12 Months of Christmas

Here it is!  My first Christmas card of 2019!  Woot! Woot!  Only about 50 more to go and it's a wrap!

Today starts the new year and a new challenge at the 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.  The theme this month is "Anything but Rectangle."  Since I loved shaped cards, I had fun with this one!

Our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs.  Andrea North has many wonderful digital images in her SheepSki Designs Etsy Shop -- for Christmas, or any time of year.  Check it out here

I used the beautiful Christmas Candle to create this circle shaped card:

I colored up Christmas Candle with Copic markers, then used a variety of circle dies to cut it out, back it, and make the circle shaped card.  The card base is a die from Tattered Lace.

The beautiful poinsettia paper on this card is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.  Lisa is continuing to sponsor the 12 Months of Christmas Link Up again this year, so if you link up 2 Christmas cards each month, you'll be eligible for one of her papers that month.  

I know this isn't the time of year we usually think of creating Christmas cards, but I love to make 1 or 2 each month.  It makes November and December MUCH less hectic!  I hope you, too, get at least one made and find time to link up with us at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.  You'll want a chance at these awesome prizes! 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Sweet Stamping Christmas -- ATG
Outlawz Festive Friday -- Christmas
Not Just Cards -- ATG
