a fav Mo Manning image

Hi there,
Had the chance last night (late) to create...just because! 
Well I love this image from Mo Manning called "Shall I Play for You" ... it will be used for about 25 of my Christmas cards this year. Found the words to "the little drummer boy" and love these two together.

I muted the red on him using Copic T2 to keep his clothes looking tattered...


This will be mailed so it's light on embellishments... didn't list Copics used because you can color him however YOU want (-:

Entering the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Christmas
Digital Tuesday Challenge
CMC Challenge-a touch of Red 

have a beautiful day,
hugs

I've seen this image on some other cards, but yours is just lovely. This little fella really reflects a 'what it ought to be' Christmas feeling, and I love the papers & embellishments you've used here. I may have to get this one...I've not bought too many digi's. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful card.
