Be Merry & Bright

Today's post is my card for the November Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge.  I've done a good job keeping up with this challenge throughout the year.  Really, it's only once a month and some of my favorite Christmas stamps are Waltzingmouse, so it was actually pretty easy for me.

The challenge this month was to make a card using a light source.  I didn't have much in the way of candles or lanterns and such, so I decided to create a string of lights.  I used a circle image from one of the stamp sets; a solid circle with a starburst.  I used silver embossing powder to create pretty shiny balls and then colored the starbursts with copics.  I added jewels for sparkle and .. voila!  I had strings of pretty Christmas lights.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
