Digi Day at SNR - Christmas Candle

I am such a DORK!!! I used a sketch from Stampavie for my card and when I went to enter it in their sketch contest, I realized that you must use one of their images. But, I loved the sketch and didn't read the rules. Well, I hope you enjoy it anyway!!!

Today is Digi Thursday over at SNR The Card Universe with Sweet 'n Sassy.  It was also Challenge #1. Which was to make a card with Holly somewhere on the card. You have until next Thursday to participate and get the cute bird in mailbox digi FREE. Go here to see the free digi and get the instructiions for entering.  You might also want to check out the precious digi deer and sayings that are on sale over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Ok, so here is my card for this Challenge.  I used a piece of retired paper with Holly on it from Close to my Heart..
I then printed out four of the Christmas Candle Digis from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Then I made one smaller and printed three of them out. I used one big one for the image, and the other two, I cut out just the poinsettias and holly. I pop-dotted one on top of the colored image and used the other in the bottom right corner.
The three smaller images I colored and cut out and mounted them in the upper right corner.
The ovals were cut using Nesties and the decorative top and bottom to the oval was a part of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant Die.

All images were colored with Copic Markers and on parts of the candle, I also used the Copic Spica Glitter pens. Although you can't see the slight shimmer in the photo.

I used Yellow Glitter in the centers of the Poinsettias.
The edge of the card was hand stitched with matching embroidery floss.

Another wonderful card...I really like everything about it. Thanks to your wonderful cards and stitching, I have dug out my needle and thread and my last two cards have had stitching on them ...not quite as fancy as yours. But it is very relaxing.
