Chrimbo cards Nearly done

Just a few more to make, big sigh of relief.
These 2 are using the same sketch to be found over on Delicious Doodles challenge this week.
Same image, candle with ivy just different colours and embellishments.

First up is the red and green version

BP mostly papermania with a few scraps from stash. The dew drops from Crafty Feelings.
The candle on both these cards was coloured with promarkers with diamond stickles to outline the flame and some of the ivy leaves decoupaged on. This one was stuck to green card that was painted with silver shimmer paint. Some little peeloffs in the corners. The little star shapes are made from quilling papers and sewn to the card with little pearlised sequins for stability.

The second card is mostly pink. I know I don't tend to go near this colour - but was for a friend who loves pink. The candle was attached to some hammered white card stock which had been ink distressed.

This time the embellies are a couple of die cut silver swirls and some silver netting that I threaded onto a jewellery finding, secured to the card with a silver brad.

I am entering the red and green card into this weeks challenge over on Delicious Doodles as it is their sketch and into Shannon's Sentiments Storefront for their Red, Green and White challenge

The pink one, I am entering into the challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenges for the pink, silver and white challenge and Off the Wall Craftiness for their Red, Hot Pink and Green challenge using this pic as inspiration.
