Challenge Me A Christmas Card - CANDLES

Is it starting to feel like Christmas is just around the corner? In a panic and looking for ideas? Michelle Lupton My Fusion Card Challenge Teamie, CAS-ual Friday's Girl Friday, and creator at Handmade By Michelle blog is having a special event! Every day she has a different challenge - Michelle makes a card, and she asks one of her crafty friends to play along too. Some of the challenges are very unique and creative so you'll want to check it out! I got an easy one! The challenge Michelle and I are both playing along with today is "CANDLES"!
I made this card using all Poppystamps dies! 
I started by die cutting a large POINTED OVAL FRAME die cut. I traced the outline on a card base and inked up everything outside the oval with Tumbled Glass distress ink . I placed three Formal Candles inside the oval, but before I adhered them I die cut a circle and used it as a mask to ink up the glow in Mustard Seed for each candle. I added more ink in Squeezed Lemonade being very careful to stay inside the pencil marked oval.
Next I added a slightly larger oval cut from gold and adhered it over the pencil drawn oval. All that was left to do was embellish the candles with pine boughs and poinsettias. 
I hope your day is Merry and Bright! As a special treat Poppystamps is sponsoring a prize on Michelle's Blog! So head on over there and leave a comment! That's how you can enter to win!! Click Here.   There's another prize on the Poppystamps blog!  Check it here!
