Warm Christmas

** To see the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge please scroll down. **

I am falling behind in my Christmas cards so now I am playing catch up. I am also trying to get a few challenges in! Today's card just came together. The most difficult thing on this card was cutting out the bow and holly on the candle. I sponged around the edges just a bit on the candle image and the sentiment with green. I used some vintage looking paper (with the dots on it) that I found in a clearance bin at Target. It is from Making Memories and the package had been damaged. Still worked well for me! :-) 

I colored the image using Copics and some gold Stickles for the flame. I had some of the red pearls, used Nesties for the images and a Stampin Up scallop punch.
