N for Numbers

Its time for another ABC Christmas challenge and this time its Helens turn to host the challenge and she has chosen the theme N for Numbers

Our Sponsor is the lovely All Dressed Up.
The image I have used is All Dressed Up For Christmas
I have masked the image on my PC and added the text took me a what seemed like forever! to work out and do but I love the effect of the PC masking think I will be doing this again soon. I have coloured the image with Spectrum noir pens and added some stickles,
the added glossy accents to the baubles and stars. 
The text is a poem called The Christmas Tree by K Ross and I have
repeated it so it makes a nice amount of writing.
Oh and yes the challenge at ABC Christmas challenge is N for Numbers!
and if you look a little closer you can see the sentiment at the top is On the 25th December.

Heres a closer look at the tree because you can not see the glossy accents in the main photo

I love the way the light shines on these.

Here are some challenges I am playing along with this time:

Inky Chicks - Christmas in July
