Pattie's Creations Christmas Challenge

Good day ladies, have I ever got a great challenge for you today. It’s challenge time again over at Pattie’s Creations and this time the theme is Christmas!!! Yup, it’s time to start getting all of those Christmas cards that you been putting off making, made. I was so incredibly lucky to be able to get the most heart warming image to use for this challenge. It’s a brand new one that Pattie made up for a drawing challenge on CDAC and as soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted it.
Does this image not just melt your heart to look at it? It's called Holiday Miracle and I think you can see why.  You can find it and all of her other fabulous images here. I decided that this very special image needed a very special project for it, so I looked around and found the tutorial for this fabulous Tea Light Easel card. It’s very easy to do and you can find the tutorial here. If you have any problems with it, please feel free to contact me.

So I colored my image with Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms. The dp is My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas Tinsel paper and the cs is from SU. I used my Beaded Ovals Nestibilities for both my image and the sentiment. The sentiment is also from Pattie’s Creations…you can find them and a whole bunch more here.  
I used my Stamp n Stuff Red Tinsel embossing powder on the beaded parts of my oval behind my image to tie it in with my dp and give it a little “pop”. I used my Star Dust stickles on the baby’s hat and the ribbon is from Celebrate It Holiday Ribbon (you can find this at Michaels).
So now that you’ve checked out my Christmas project, why don’t you head over to Pattie’s and join in the fun. The rules are simple…just make a project (it need not be a card) that follows the theme. Please, no back linking. You must use a Digital Image or Stamped Image on your project. You are not required to use one of Pattie’s images…although we would be thrilled if you did, but those projects made with a Pattie’s Creation image will get an extra entry into our random draw. For all of the rules and prizes head on over to the Challenge Blog. We have a few surprises over there that you don't want to miss out on hearing about. And while you’re there check out the incredible creations that my teamies have come up with.
Thanks for coming by,
