CCEE Christmas Candles

Happy Monday!! For my weekly challenge with my CCEE friends, we were sent supplies from Charlene (LilLuvsStampin). Here were our instructions:
- We must use red starburst translucent paper - check
- We must use poinsettia green leaves and at least one of three poinsettia flowers - check
- We must use either gold stretch cord or gold ribbon - check
- optional - snowflakes and ornament: didn't include.

I was given this darling Northwoods image by Denise (Peanutbee) - The Paper Landscaper, in an image swap. Thank you sweet Denise!! I colored it with copics. I then diecut and embossed it with my Nestabilites and sponged the edges before removing it from the diecut. I used all Ranger Distress Inks. I covered the top half with Scattered Straw, and the bottom with Tea Dye. I then sponged Tea Dye over 2/3 of the top. To finish it off, I sponged the edges with Walnut Stain. Finally, I added a bit of glitter to the berries and made candle flames.

Thank you so much for stopping by. To see what the other girls have come up with, click HERE.
