Candles candles everywhere

The last gorgeous new set from Flourishes in the October line up is Christmas Candles.  Beautiful images and sentiments for elegant creations!
DPK_SneakPeek_ChristmasCandles_wm
I began by stamping the image on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copics.  I added some sparkle with a Stardust gelly roll pen to each flame then coated the glass candle holders with Crystal Effects.  I used a Ranger Inkssentials white pen to add highlights here and there and cut out the image with a Spellbinders Classic Rectangle die.  I used Labels Twenty Two to for the sentiment and Fanciful Holiday for the swirly die cut border at the top.   The paper is Wassail from Basic Grey. 
I hope you enjoyed all of this months stamp sets.  It’s time for everyone to be getting started on their Christmas cards so don’t hesitate, you NEED these sets, lol!  Okay, I never start mine early.  What fun is it if you’re not in a last minute frenzy to get everything done before Christmas day?!!
Check out all the great cards from the design team below!

Danielle, I love your image and sentiment placing! And boy, do I love those cute button accents! :) I really love your cards :)

Very pretty colours you chose for this Danielle. I love the three twine tied buttons. The subtle sponging on the sentiment tag is very effective and brightens it.

How fun! The first thing I thought of when I saw the flourishy diecut border at the top was - a chandelier's arms spreading over a table on which was displayed your candle vignette. Gorgeous card.
