Sharon's Christmas Candle Card

It's been a while since I posted anything here that is probably due to having flu and a chest infection so I hadn't been up to doing very much before Christmas and then Christmas was upon us which left me no time to make anything let so I v'e  had nothing to post.

This card was the only handmade card I received this year it was created by my friend Sharon. I loved the simplicity of this.

My first reaction was to text Sharon and tell her I loved her card and would be CASE ing it as soon as I felt up to it.

I have recently found the energy and time to do just that.

Here is my take on this card. I used the  Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper from SU and punched out the flames using a retired petal punch.  (Sharon used the wing of the bird from the bird punch for her flame.)
 I then coloured the glimmer paper  using the blendabilities   alcohol pens.

I also sponged the edges of the candles for a little dimension.

I gave my background a little more foliage by stamping the pine branch from the stampin' up set Ornamental Pine twice before adding the candles and greeting.
