Festive Friday #36

Hi!

It's that time of the week again - a new Festive Friday challenge!


This week Nicole has found this gorgeous picture of a table all set out for a Christmas meal to inspire us.  Must be an Aussie table, as it looks like prawns on the plates!


I took my inspiration from the candles this week.  I had also just received my new Stampin' Up! order with the Festival of Prints DSP stack, so I had to use some of the paper on the card!


Isn't it gorgeous paper?  I made the flames of the candles using the wing section of the Bird Builder Punch.  They were punched in So Saffron and sponged with More Mustard ink to give a more flame-like effect.  The middle candle was popped up on Dimensionals.


I had an extra candle made, so it went on the inside to jazz that up a little!

 
The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch also adds a touch of interest to the inside of the card.
 
So will you find time to play along?  I hope so!
 
Stamps: Snow Swirled
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard
