Gecko Galz Monthly Christmas Challenge

 Gecko Galz Monthly Christmas Challenge is so much fun to play with!  They give you a gorgeous vintage image to play along with and I love them!   This month's image reminded me so much of a photo I have of my Mama when she was around 5 years old and part of the writing at the top of the image included the word "Noel", the name of my lovely daughter!  
So I had to create something now didn't I?

I used Procreate to add the vintage image onto a background by Pexels on Pixabay.  I used different brushes to create some lights and a star on the tree and to flare out the ribbon a bit.  Some washi tape effects and confetti sprinkled lights added to the beautiful bokeh effect the background had originally.  The final touch was adding Noel on a strip of washi tape.  This was really relaxing and calming working on this...kind of quiet reflection time.
I am also entering this in the Christmas in July Blog Hop presented by LeighSBDesigns! Stay cool inside with the A/C on dreaming of snowflakes this month and get a jump on your Christmas makes!
