DS4J Progressive Christmas Challenge

Hello there.  Welcome to my blog.  Today's post features the freebie from Digital Stamps 4 Joy.  This is a progressive challenge.  Each month, as long as you play along, you will receive a new Christmas image.  This allows you to get a jump start on those cards for next year.  This month's is a beautiful candle.  I followed the Feeling Sketchy #77 challenge to create the card.

I printed out the candle and then used Crayola's and Sakura pens to color it in.  I found that cute poinsettia in my stash and had to use it.

Thanks so much for coming to see me today.  Make sure to hop on over to DS4J and play along.  Have a wonderful day and God bless y'all.
