Who said Christmas had finished?

Our Totally Gorjuss Challenge this week is
An AWESOME Sketch!  If you wanna see the sketch you will have to stop by the blog! thehehee!! naughty aren’t I ?

OK so its a Christmas project….! well I have started again with Christmas Projects for Christmas 2012!
Cause I LOVE making Christmas Projects and cards
AND I have been wanting to make one of these for the last few months and not had enough time
well I just could not resist trying one and making it for my Project for the Fabulous Sketch it just shouted Box top to me…
Thought you might like to see the inside too!
I have used some Echo park papers and also Kraft and Shimmer linen yellow card not sure of the name of that one was in my stash for a while,
The Tea lights smell divine the fragrance is wild cotton… Smiles lovely…
Now funny as it seems my Mum gave me some ribbon that she had in her stash and well she had it for like ages too! and when I was looking for something to pick the candle colour the ribbon SHOUTED to me and I think it works ok.. I also used these 2 bright blue Gems but have No idea where they came from?
or in fact why I only have 2

Shame they are really nice will have to make a note to find our where they are from… Hmmmmm…. ? if you know can you shout loud where you have seen them!! pretty please!
Oh and I paper pieces Henry! I just LOVE Henry!
I used Distress inks to shade the paper pieced areas.
Happy Crafting girls xx
