Carols by Candlelight

I have an ultra simple Christmas card to share today...featuring one of the stamps from the 'Christmas Critters' set by Penny Black. I stamped directly on to a kraft card blank, then coloured the image using watercolour pencils (although I didn't use any water). The sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley.

Challenges for this card:
