There's Something Magical About Christmas

Well here we are, the last challenge at Digistamps4Joy before we take a break for Christmas. And we have such a wonderful challenge for everyone. The theme of our challenge this time is “There’s Something Magical About Christmas”. We want to see projects that depict “Your” meaning of the Magic of Christmas.

To me, Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ, so the image that I used is NativityVillage.

I coloured the image using my SU felts and my gold glitter pen. The black and the gold cs is from Recollections. The oval shaped easel card is a svg file from The Cutting Café that I printed out in pdf form and then cut it out by hand (I don’t have a cutting machine).

I decorated it with my Madera Corner Die by Memory Box, red roses from my local dollar store (I know they look like they’re pink, but they are red lol), and some red flat backed pearls by Recollections.

The sentiment is by Teresa Arsenault and if you click on the picture you will get a close up of this wonderful sentiment. I cut it out using my Nestibilities scallop die.

Now it’s your turn to show us what makes Christmas “magical” to you. For some fabulous ideas and to check out all of the rules and prizes for the challenge, head on over to our Challenge Blog. Remember, our challenge lasts for 3 weeks this time as we are taking a break over the Christmas holidays. Our next challenge will start on January 9th, 2013.
I would like to take this time to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and All of the Best for the New Year.
Thanks for visiting ~ Charlene

Gorgeous easel.. Love the color combo and pop of the roses. The tiny red pearls remind me of holly berries and are the perfect touch to those beautiful flourishes !
