FS144 Christmas Candles

Hello Everyone!!!  Today's card is for this week's Featured Stamper Challenge!!  This week the honour goes to!!!  Congratulations Christine and enjoy your week!!!  I decided to use the soon to be released Decorative Frames Borders - Round and the Merry Little Christmas Set for the candles in the centre.  The November releases by JustRite will be available for sale from this Friday - November 13th!!!

I was inspired by Christine's End of Summer card and changed - the stamps, colours, papers, added an extra punched border, moved the bling, used a bow instead of knots, using embossing instead of scoring.

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with red bazzill and more VV that has been embossed with Swiss Dots EF.  The middle panel is more red bazzill that has been punched on both edges with the Fleur de Lis border punch and layered with VV (pierced) and some Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DSP.  Around that I tied 1" Ivory satin ribbon and added a bow made with my Bow Easy!  The main panel has been stamped using one of the soon to be released borders from the Decorative Frames Borders - Round in Real Red and the Candles from the Merry Little Christmas Set.  The candles were coloured with markers and a blender pen and popped up on foam tape.  Both stamped images were cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and mounted on an aqua bazzill piece cut out with the Label 9 Nestabilities.  To finish I added little Kaisercraft red pearls to each of the flourishes on the border.

Kathy, the first thing I did when I saw this card was to see whether I owned Labels 9 and to find my new bow easy. Now I'm searching for Labels 9. lol
Your card is, once again, fabulous.

This is gorgeous Kathy!! I just love your layout and the colors!! The candle image is so beautiful. I took the weekend off from stamping to catch up on some family and house responsibilities. Feels better to get caught up.

Hope you had an awesome weekend my friend.
