CHNC Christmas #522, 26th Dec

Anything Goes with an option of doing a Christmas or New Year card.  This is the last challenge of the year.  Next time we are back it will be 2nd Jan 2021.  (Just gotten used to typing 2020)

For this week I have used an image from Rick St Denis "Little Matchgirl".  This is one of my all time favourite Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales.  I am also extremely fond of Oscar Wilde's, Happy Prince.   Both sad, yet somehow I see hope in mankind in both these tales.

The image has been coloured with copic pens and fussy cut.  This is the cover of the card I have made using the story.   Think this will be going into my Christmas page of my 2020 Journal.
