Christmas Candle-- for SheepSki Designs

Old or New --that's the theme at the SheepSki Designs Challenge blog for January 2019.  Great theme for a new year, don't you think?  You can either enter a favorite card using a SheepSki Designs image that you've enjoyed making from the past, or create something new.

I've always loved Andrea North's Christmas Candle image, and needed to color it up for another challenge today, so I decide to use it for today's challenge at SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog.  So, it's the "new" theme for me with Christmas Candle:

I colored Christmas Candle with Copic markers, then cut it out and backed using a couple Lifestyle Crafts circle dies. 

The card base was cut out with my Silhouette Cameo 3 with an SVG file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  It can also be found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The poinsettia background paper is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.  The red shimmer trim is from Close To My Heart. 

I hope you find time to join us this month at SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog.  Now that the holidays are over, maybe things will slow down?  Well, maybe not! But take time for yourself anyway!
