Oh, Christmas Tree! Oh, Christmas Tree!



So how cute is this choir of children?!!   I love their sweet faces.  It looks like they're singing their little hearts out. The image is from Mo, and I think it's just adorable.  I've colored them to look like a happy little Christmas tree--the green part of their choir robes is the tree, the red books are the ornaments, and the gold trim is the garland!  I colored this image while I was visiting my Mother, and I forgot to bring it home with me when I left.  She mailed it to me, so I could enter it in this week's challenge at DP2.  Isn't that awesome?!  Thanks Mommy!  Suprinsingly, it's the first time I've entered one of Mo's challenges and they're already on challenge #9!  I'm also entering it in Cupcake Craft Challenge.  Their challenge this week is "Sing a Christmas Carol."

On a side note: The striped paper reminds me of those fruit punch candy canes. I can't decide how I feel about those "designer" flavors. Something about fruit punch and bubble gum flavored candy canes seems wrong. Thoughts?

Thanks for looking!

Those kids are CUTE! They are the best looking choir I have seen in a long time! LOL! I like the tree idea, too. Hmmm! Did you use gold gel pen for the gold garland part? And I think you are right! Gotta keep the candy canes PEPPERMINT! Sometimes, you just can't change certain things without ruining them, right?
Great card! Keep them coming!

I like all the weird flavored candy canes. That might be because I don't really like peppermint... But I'm glad you were able to make an adorable card out of that image. It was sad seeing it left behind knowing you took so much effort coloring it.
