Michael Strong Hanukkah digital image

As Hanukkah is also nearly there
(Christmas and Hanukkah are overlapping this year)
here is a tip for a quick card.

Michael Strong has this wonderful digital Chanukkiah 
on his blog HERE.
 You can download the image to your own computer
and can use it however large you want.
That is the advantage of digital images.
First I made the background of the card
by making the image real small and a lot of them
on a sheet. I printed this on of white paper
and used this for a background panel.

Next I printed the coloured image.
A piece of gold paper behind the image a 
sentiment stamped and a ribbon and
this is a quick card, especially if you need
to make more. The first one always takes
a little figuring out.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day.

What a beautiful card Hetty - love how you have used the image multiple times for the background, as well as for the focal point.
Blessed Hanukkah to you and yours

Your card is lovely! Love the way you framed and colored the Chanukkiah! Also love how you used the smaller images of it as a background! You are so creative with digital stamps, Hetty! I saved Mike's image (thanks for the link!!).
