Light a Candle

Edit: OMG I just realised this is my 500th post on this blog! I should totally do something to celebrate... I shall have to ponder that!

Ugg, I feel so sick today. I just hope it's not the bug that's been going around, I no has time!

Still, I am in desperate need of getting some christmas cards done, so I decided I was going to do at least two today if it killed me - and it might, since it's already half past two and I've only managed one!

I used an image from Just Ink Lined, coloured with my promarkers and some glitter glue added, along with a computer generated sentiment. The papers are from the gorgeous gilded winter paper back from first edition and I distressed the edges and scrunched them up. I cut the swirls on my cameo, in more first edition paper and added lace, pearls and a couple of flowers to complete the look.
