Christmas Candles


We're down to the last day of Sneak Peek Previews of all these gorgeous sets at Flourishes this October.  Haven't they been wonderful?  Today we have a double bonus, a great new set called Christmas Candles, and a gorgeous new 1 2 3 Create Kit called Sunshine!


Sometimes wonderful papers give you new combinations you might not have thought of before.  This Sunshine Kit did just that for me.  It combines deep black, cream, mustard and a soft sky blue that looks fabulous together.  It's one gorgeous kit - the papers are amazing - but even more-so the fantastic accents to go with them.  

I colored this up with Copics trimming it out with a Labels Fourteen Die, then adding some pretty scallops under the trims and along the bottom.  What I think is SO cool, is the deep yellow ribbon has iridescent blue in it.  So when you turn it - or pull the threads on the ends like I have, that gorgeous blue show through. 


And because I put the sentiment on the inside of the card I'll show you that too. 

Such a beautiful verse  - especially for Christmas.

Beautiful inside and out Christine. That blue/turquoise colour is so different for Christmas but very festive when combined with the gold. The ribbon and black lace are to die for. Fantastic card.
