Christmas 2007 Card Challenge

For the Christmas Card Challenge, I wanted to concentrate on Advent instead. The Christmas Season is mostly advent, the preparation for Christ's coming. So, I made a card that also doubles as an advent wreath, complete with 4 candles: 3 purple and 1 pink.
On the front of the card, I used Karen Foster's Alphabet Slide to form the words ADVENT. On the inside flap, I made a slot for keeping unused candles. Then I made slots also to explain the significance of the advent wreath. I took me a while to iron out how to make the whole thing stick, stand and work, but it was all worth it. I was one of the lucky winners. Thank you, Marian King, for sponsoring this challenge.
