Christmas Candle

Happy Friday!
Wow! Only a week and change until Christmas! I'm almost finished, just a few more things to take care of, but before internet shopping was so easy, my hubby used to wait until Christmas Eve to start! Can you believe?

I know y'all have seen a lot of this wonderful Bubble Candle Oval this week, but I'm sure they'll give you plenty of great ideas and color schemes to use. I went with a soft palette; gold and blue. The elegance of gold embossing just seemed to go with this image so I gold embossed everything. I thought the Retro Starburst image (on top) and the Argyle Background (on bottom) went w/ it very nicely.  The diamonds in the argyle were stamped w/ a lighter gold ink and I colored the image w/ Copics. I added a die cut banner with the Christmas Blessing greeting across the bottom. The finished ivory card measure 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

What a beautiful and peaceful card! If you'd have asked me yesterday I would have assured you that blue, gold and beige definitely don't go together - shows what I know ;)
