FFC28 - The Light of the World


It's time for a new Festive Friday challenge! Here's the inspiration photo:


It seemed that the obvious element was a pine cone, but I don't have a pine cone stamp so I had to go with something else. I chose to focus on the candle in the jar. Christmas is about joy and peace, but it's also about light. Or The Light, and this Stamps of Life sentiment was perfect for this card.

I built a shaker with a dark brown (pinecone-coloured) frame and little golden beads to represent the jar, and kept it neutral and as uncluttered as possible.

Now it's your turn - the deadline is Wednesday, April 9 - hope to see you there!
