Rainbow Lady's Challenge 81


The challenge was to use a Christmas Carol on a black card base. This is the stamp I bought whilst on the Stamp Addicts retreat back in June (can't wait for next year!) She is by Personal Impressions and I have used her on the bulk of my main Christmas cards.
I coloured her in with Lyra Polycolours and matted her onto silver holographic card and added gems in the corners. I did the same with the words, which are from a very well used Hot Off The Press kit.
I added ribbon and a large sprig of holly left over from a couple of Christmas's ago. Am starting to feel quite festive now, the Christmas light's are on in town, I've had my first mince pie, bring on the mulled wine and I will be happy!!
