Christmas Blessings

Hi Everyone, my card today is one I cased from HERE such a beautiful card by Karen. I loved the idea so went about it all in PS. I duplicated the sentiment and greyed them out a little and accentuated the other with red, I wanted to use a modern font, but after trying a few, felt this (BlackChancery) suited the image, I hope I am right.

Image by Audrey Jean Roberts
printed onto crosshatched card
cut with Tattered Lace pin dot die
layered onto gold mirror card
 also cut with the same die
ribbon from stash.
Tonic gold glitter on candles 
Stickles red glitter for berries

Sharing a Green Woodpecker that stayed in the garden feeding for half an hour! We couldn't get over how deep he was digging. He hardly moved from the spot, so whatever was there he enjoyed it / them.

Beautiful card. Love the background with just the one sentiment highlighted. It really pops. The candles are so lifelike, the sparkle is awesome and your bow is terrific too.

Well I love the candle card with all the glitter and texture and the woodpecker? I've never seen one like this. Your pic is awesome as well. Our ground is so hard...rather summer or winter or even after a rain, this bird would had been disappointed. As you said, I hope he got something gooooood!!!
