Y for Yuletide...ABC DT card

I have to tell you something we had 414 entries! on the last challenge! WOOOOOOOOOOO HOOooooooo!!! well done you guys! thats AWESOME!

I have had a lovely time looking at all the brilliant cards! 
But picking a Top set this time is way hard.

 So Lacey maybe will take a little bit longer this time! But in the mean time we have another fantastic Challenge for you!

Its Lorraine's turn to pick and post this time and she has chosen
now I know this to most people sound like just another Christmas card challenge but.... when your thinking of all the things you can do for your card you need to remember to add these!
Please use 1 or all of the following things to create your card or project
Holly & Berries
Red & Green

We are sponsored by our lovely teamie Lacey
So make sure you enter with a christmas card/project
and follow the theme and you could be winning a fantastic prize.
Annie one of our fabby teamies has written a paragraph on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog all about what Yuletide is and I have to say it makes a lovely read! Thanks Annie :0)

So for my card/project I have decided to use a beautiful Woodware stamp set 
and here are my efforts
and a little closer of the candle and tag
 and the card with the candle
 I stamped the holly and berries image on to white card stock and coloured it with distress inks
my favourite, using the peeled paint to then stamp direct onto the kraft card stock another fast becoming favourite, I have used bazzill dotted swiss pale green card stock and distressed the edges of all the layers, punched some vellum, added some ribbon and a flower and brad. 

For the candle I stamped on to tissue and coloured it,
then with my heat buddy and some backing partchment heated the iamge onto the candle...
a little more tricky with tissue but I had run out of tissue paper!

and for the tag I just repeated the process for the image layer of the card.
what do you think?
