The Light of Winter

What fun I have had with this Capella paper kit!! Today I used another new set from Clear Dollar called The Light of Winter. I started with a sketch I'd used on a card a month or so ago... and ended up with something entirely different. LOL! :-) This particular card features the billowing clouds velvet ribbon and rhinestones. *So* vintage-y and pretty!! I watercolored with my Tombow markers again. They give such an illusion of depth and shadows.

Here's another card with the candle from The Light of Winter along with the single sentiment Let God's Light Shine. And, of course, more paper and embellishments from my Capella Paper kit. I used my Copics for this card, and made the "candlelight" with pastels. All the details for both cards are down below.
