First Christmas Card

Hi all,
I have been visiting people's blogs and seen that they have started their Christmas cards already. I have decided to do the same because this year - oops sorry last year was such a mad panic at the last minute for family cards. I have also been dying to make one of these candle cards. So here is my first candle card and Christmas card of 2012 using this amazing teddy bo image.

The paper is a hybrid made from a nitwit paper and a raspberry road one.
The gorgeous sparkly vellum was from my local craft store and is by docrafts
The poinsettias, trees and snowflakes are all from Marianne dies.
The little candle is one I bought as part of a set of four to go into a little lantern.

Enjoy your day
