Merry Monday #282 with Linda as our Hostess

Welcome to another Merry Monday Challenge!  Linda is our hostess this week with a lovely inspiration photo.  I saw the gold candle and played off that by embossing my candle with gold ep.
This stamp set is WPlus9 Merry & Bright.  I used the Mix & Mat Berry & Bough Dies.
I hope to see your card in the gallery and please go see what the design team has made to inspire you even more!
Heart Hugs, friends!

  12. Hi Colleen, Thought I was already following your blog (as we have several blog friends in common). After reading Kara's post showing pictures of the fun your craft group had and the lovely cards she shared, I checked each of her friends' links, and while I am following some of you already, didn't see 'me' here. I love your take on the inspiration photo (something I'd find difficult to interpret!). You've done it beautifully with the gold candle, tucking in the greenery and other dimensional blossoms. I really like the edging that you've done on the centerpiece. TFS
