Christmas Lamp


Good evening.

Once again, the lovely Beccy at Beccy's Place is running her 'Month of Holiday 
Cards' challenge. This is the 8th year, and runs all of November, with a different 
challenge each day. It is a great way to increase one's stash of Christmas cards, 
and Beccy is very generous with her digi prizes.

A few days ago the challenge was to create a card using up some of the 
pile of 'scraps' we crafters tend to accumulate. I decided to use scraps 
of 3 different papers from a 12 x 12 stack I bought 'yonks' ago. I also
used a cute little scalloped punch which I have also had for 
'yonks' and have only used twice...MY BAD!

It took me ages to carefully align the squares, so my finished base
would be perfect rectangle, but in the end I was quite happy
with the result.

A close up of the beautiful image, one of Beccy's, which was a joy to
colour with (as usual) my Promarkers.

My greeting is from a sheet of mixed font greetings.
  The matt and font are very shiny gold, although they look black.
