Gold & Black Candle

Hope you're enjoying a lovely relaxed Sunday and not snowed in or iced up too badly!  I think the priority for most of us today is to keep warm. 

The weekly sketchie challenge over on Craftbubble's Craft Mad & Loving It group is to use only one colour plus black on our projects and to follow this week's sketch (created by my great crafting pal Kathy) for the layout. 

For my entry I decided to use the elegant and rich combination of black and gold.  My base card has a delicate swirly pattern in pale gold on it and the lovely rich gold card was in my stash.

I stamped this fabulous Penny Black candle image on to black cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with sparkly gold embossing powder.  Using a set of deckle edge nesties I cut out the image layer and a larger layer from the gold card.  I moved a couple of the sketch elements around a little to balance my image and added the 'merry christmas' sentiment created with a Cuddly Buddly stamp.  The flowers were created with Nellie Snellen punch & emboss sets in two sizes, layered up and a faux gold pearl added to the centres using a Waco Pearlmaker pen - Simples!

I like the finished card so much I shall probably make a couple more.

Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope you've enjoyed today's card. 

Keep on Crafting !
