Good morning all!
A quick, simple card today made with Tilda as St. Lucia. St. Lucia day is celebrated at the end of this week in Sweden. The oldest daughter in a family acts out the part of St. Lucia dresses as in this picture and serves rolls to her family in the morning.
St. Lucia was a young girl in Sweden centuries ago who became a Christian. I think she may have been killed for it. I have to check my history. In my 2nd/3rd grade classroom we talk about how the holidays are celebrated around the world and this is one that we talk about.
In Jamestown, NY near me there is a very large Swedish population.
Disclaimer: I apologize if I gave ANY incorrect information and would be happy to edit if there is someone who wants to comment with more details. thank you!
My card base is Papertrey white, then a layer of Hunter Green. The dp came from Joann's. Tilda is colored very simply with just a few copic markers. I painted her dress with Shimmerz in Angel Wing white. If you can't see it, maybe it will show if you click on it to enlarge. I used my usual stickles, Stardust on her candle flame.
Thanks for all your sweet comments yesterday!
Have a good Monday, Cheryl
