It's time for a NEW CHALLENGE at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY and this week's CHALLENGE is to create a Christmas card based on a song, poem or event.  I chose this AMAZING image by Jen for my card this week - you can find it at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY SHOP along with lots of other AWESOME images.

I chose to use words from the song "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and the words that inspired my card are "Glory to the NEW BORN KING."  I had so much fun with this image.  I colored it with Copics and Atyou Spicas and then cut it out by hand.  I used a charm I found at my LSS and hung it from the card using gold cord.  Pearls are from Mark Richard's.  I used a Shadow Box card.  I have never made one before and really like how it turned out.  I used textured SU papers and DP is Jillie Bean and Echo Park.  I really like the simplicity of the card and it feels very peaceful to me.  I hope you like it and that you come play along with our challenge.  Our challenge runs until Tues., Nov. 23 in USA, so get your projects made and linked up at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY BLOG.  Can't wait to see what you create!!
