Come Let Us Adore Him

This week's Merry Monday challenge is Christmas carols. My gran's favourite carol was O Come All Ye Faithful and I knew right away that I wanted to do something with that. I purchased a nativity digi stamp set from My Printable Miracles. I used my Silhouette software to size, position, overlap and rotate images in order to get the little scene I wanted. I also added a sentiment that I created with Silhouette too. Once I printed things off, I decided that I needed a little something more at the base of my palm tree so hand stamped some grass using Mama Elephant's Sunday Stroll stamps. I'm so glad I purchased that set. It's been coming in quite handy for little extras lately! Before colouring with my Spectrum Noir markers, I cut the mat with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp.


This card took AGES to colour, but I am so happy with the result. I think it's that sweet little donkey that does it for me!


I'll be linking this card up in Merry Monday's "Christmas Carol" challenge and Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday "Anything Goes" challenge.
