Dear Santa Please Can I Have A New Camera.....

and here is a close up of my colouring

You can see why I want one can't you it gets on my nerves when I make something I like and the camera lets me down.
This is my first ever candle card I hope you can see it.
I have used Gingerbread from Sugar Nellie she is so beautiful.I coloured her using promarkers and highlighted some of the areas with loose glitter.The snowflakes are diecut from a cuttlebug die,Papers are the winter stack from DCWV,pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon from my stash.
I had such a good time making this card and so much easier than I thought it would be.I used purple candles which are scented but the ribbon is sort of hiding them.
I hope the picture isn't too fuzzy.
I would like to enter my candle card into the following challenges:

PCP Sugar Nellie Forum-Tealight Candle Card
Cute card Thursday-Anything goes
Die cut Dreams Christmas Club-Snowflakes
lollipop crafts-Very girlie
Saturday challenge-sparkle and shine
Crafty purple frog-Sparkle
