Inspired by candles

I have to admit that I don't usually participate in the Inspiration Challenges over on SCS because Saturdays are usually so busy, it's just not possible. But these just really struck me and I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw them. I haven't used this set in quite some time, but I still love it. I masked the flowers when I stamped the leaves, which were stamped off once before stamping onto the cardstock. I sponged around the Summer Sun panel with basic black, especially around the bottom. I colored in the flowers with my summer sun marker to make them stand out a little more. I sponged around the sentiment with black and summer sun. I have to say it again, I just *love* this sentiment set, Elegant Cheer! I received the dew drops in my Spring Fling package from my *flower*, Dawn (thanks!!!!!). I pierced around the edge of the base and added brads. My dh even said this was the prettiest card he thinks I've ever made! Not sure if that's a good thing, but whatever, I'll take the compliment!!! Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!
