Snuggle In The Snow

Hello everyone Hope your all having a great weekend,
Tonight I want to share this little candle card that I have made for my little sister (I say little but she is 27) and her partner.
The image is from Motivet stamps and I think is so sweet for a couple at christmas I have coloured the image with promarkers and I have used Broken china distress ink too.The stunning paper(hated cutting into it)is from Bo Bunny one of the new collections and I have also used a cuttlebug snowflake die,oval nestabilities and some pearls from wild orchid crafts along with a little diamond stickles glitter glue.Once again I apologise for the quality of the picture and thats why I have scanned my image too so you can see my colouring alot clearer.
I hope you like what I have made.
I am going to enter my candle card into the following challenges:
Crafters companion monthly-sketch or christmas theme
oldie but goodie-Christmas Birthday
OSAAT-Anything goes
Papertake weekly-no red n green

That snowflake die is a Cuttlebug one, it's called 'ice crystal' I think, but I can't seem to find it in stock anywhere. Hope you find it - it's probably my most used die! Lisa x
