My entry in Beccy's Place Fifth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge for the letter "L" is Lantern. This one is actually one of Beccy's free digis. I printed the digi on vellum and colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Drew a candle and flame on an oval of white cardstock, added a bit of yellow and orange coloring, then adhered it behind the vellum. Cut a piece of gray patterned scrapbook paper and mounted it behind the vellum with silver photo mounts. Finished off the card with some white gel pen and silver fine-line sharpie highlights. Am also entering this into the SumMoreFun challenge (my card includes red ribbon and greenery like their mood board.)

My mom was a quilter, so her children all grew up enjoying a warm quilt that included scraps of many of the clothes that she had sewn for us over the years. I tried my hand at quilt making, but because I couldn't sew a straight line or a tight point I did more seam ripping than sewing! Then I discovered "crazy quilting" and loved the many stitches that I could use to create works of art. I haven't made a quilt yet, but have made a few pillow toppers and, after making this card with a small quilted square, I'll be making more of these in the future. I used scraps of velvet and old silk ties, plus embroidery floss, gold cord, beads, and thin silk ribbon.
