Hello there!  It’s theme week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This week, we’d like to see your Christmas cards featuring candles or lanterns.

For my card, I printed off a digital image of a candle with holly, and colored it with markers.  I used the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge for the layout of my card.  The main panel of the card is attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive to help accommodate the thickness of the ribbon and the backs of the brads holding the sentiment frame.  I also wanted to play along in the current “3-2-1” challenge at Shopping Our Stash, so I’ve used 3 metal embellishments (the frame and two brads), 2 words in the sentiment, and 1 ribbon.  Because I colored the image with markers, I can submit this card to the “Make Your Mark” challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, too.
