Back with a card and a candle

Hello fellow bloggers and its good to be back after a wonderful holiday in Cyprus even though we did have rain, thunder and lightening a few nights that scared the living day lights out of you, as it was so loud and right over our heads with fork lightening too!! ohhhhh scary.
Had some really great food and wine plus a lot laughs with friends we have not see for ages and now we are back to earth and trying to get back into a routine.


Onto my card I made for a friend and I also decided to make her a candle to go with it, I wanted to use the papers I had just received from Simon Says Stamp which I won at Jo’s, at the Rambling Boots blog , I also won some stickles and gems (love them) which are courtesy of Simon Says Stamp too.





I have entered the card and candle into some challenges, which are:

Basic Grey – Colour Scheme
Winter Wonderland - Jingle Bells

Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle

SophistiCat – Buttons Ribbons

Darling Card Makers – Punchy

Charisma Cards, this is for the candle – No backing papers
Tuesday Taggers - Burst of Colour

Recipe for rest of the card

Paper – Basic Grey
Stamp – Sugar Nellie
Sentiment - Tag Punch – EK and Basic Grey - Rub On
Sparkle – Stickles white sparkle
Flower – Basic Grey
Ribbon – Bo Bunny
Stitching – Copic thin pen
Brads and Button – Stash
Coloured with HO2 Twinkles


Thank you for popping by and I shall see you later.
Hugs

Linda
