Christmas Candles

The beautiful stamp used for the main image on this card is Northwoods Three Candles, Holly and Pine . I stamped it on watercolor paper then colored with Tombow (water based) markers.

The sentiment is Christmas Flourish by Penny Black. Isn't that an elegant font? I stamped it using VersaMark ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder.

The red cardstock is Prismatics Blush Red Dark , and the greens are from the Prismatics Sage paper pack. The Burgundy Velvet Ribbon is from May Arts.

I was so excited to use my new Martha Stewart Punch given to me by my dear friend Carol (carol_PA925) on SCS. Is she a sweetheart, or what? Thank you Carol....I LOVE the punch, and had looked for it everywhere! You are the sweetest and most wonderful friend to me! {{{HUGS to you!}}}

I hope your week is going well, and I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This card looks just like a mantle, with a lace doily hanging over the edge and the candle arrangement sitting on top! That velvet ribbon is gorgeous and I LOVE that golden sentiment and little angel!
I'm glad you're enjoying your punch - and very happy I could give back to you for a change :) {{{{{hugs}}}}} right back atcha!
