Hello and welcome crafty friends!
It's December 1st! HOW is it December 1st already?!
I'm pretty sure it was just August yesterday. 😉
Well, since it's a new month that means it's the start of a
This month's theme is stamps and candles.
As always, you can use just the theme, just the photo, or
combine both on your projects. My card uses mostly the
theme, but it does use colors from the photo:

I started by stamping the Christmas Candles large image onto
my panel and coloring with Spectrum Noir markers. I added
a thin frame around it using black glitter card stock.
I stamped one of the sentiments from the Christmas Bell Medley set in the
corner then adhered to a green card base. On the inside I
stamped a sentiment from the Yuletide Deer stamp set.

It's hard to tell but the flames and poinsettia centers received a 
healthy dose of diamond Stickles, and the candles were winked
by Stella.

I hope that you'll join us and link up your project at
