Christmas Card ~ Light My World

I had a little time to craft today and used the beautiful 
candle and sentiment stamps I won from Verve Stamps.
I played along with Julee's November release hop
and was the lucky winner of the WHOLE release.
I know right? I added a picture of the release below.
Thanks for your generosity Julee.
Stay tuned because I will definitely be using more of them soon.

I stamped the candle on a vellum circle and colored it with my Copics.
When I backed the vellum with a yellow circle it made 
the wicks and flowers pop but muted the candles 
so I stamped them on a piece of white scrap paper, 
fussy cut them then added them behind the candles.
I like how it made the white candles stand out.
Then I framed up the vellum circle and added some banners.
To finish off my card I added some pretty Verve sequins.

My wonderful prize!
