Let it Shine!

Let it Shine - Time for a new sketch challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. This challenge is sponsored by Delicious Doodles.

Here is our sketch for this fortnight.

This image is Christmas Lantern by our sponsor, Delicious Doodles. I colored it with Copics and I resisted the Stickles on this one. The image is so pretty, that I wanted it to stand alone and let it's own "light" shine.

My papers are Old World Winter by The Paper Studio. I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress inks.

My sentiment is Paper, Trey, Ink. 

I used some holly leaves, a stick pin and some ribbon that I colored with my Copics.
