CANDLES AND FLOWERS

The challenge for Merry Monday #156 this week is candles and flowers.  Plenty of flowers in my stamping stuff, but nary a candle.  So I cut a strip of patterned paper, cut out a flame and embossed it in gold, added the gold embossed poinsettias and some pine branches - done.  I was afraid to stamp the sentiment before not being sure where to put it exactly and then afterwards I was afraid I'd mess the whole thing up - so added it on a matching strip. 


Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  Betty
