Holiday Wishes

Over the weekend, I broke out the Prismacolor pencils and had
 some fun coloring this gorgeous image, with the current
challenge at Muse: ChristmasVisions #100 in mind:

and the inside:

 Here's the Muse card by Chriss:

I heat embossed the image in gold and colored with my Prismacolor pencils.
As much as I liked the center flower in cream colors, for my card I colored
all the flowers red, but the candles are cream. As with the Muse card,
I colored around the image in blue. I opted to just stamp the sentiment using
gold ink but not heat embossing it.

 Here's another picture of my card showing the shiny embossing;

That's it for now. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
